Paper Abstract

An original high speed polarization modulator based on an optical guided wave two-by-two switch is demonstrated. Computer simulations and experimental results, obtained in real operation conditions, confirm the excellent performance of the electro-optic device. Applications to polarization phase shift keying systems and to polarization diversity receivers are suggested.
