Paper Abstract

High quality optical waveguides have been produced by incorporating nonlinear organic molecules into polymeric substrate materials. Doping levels in excess of 30% have been achieved and waveguide propagation losses below ldBcm-1 have been measured. Selective doping has been used to produce simple monomode channel waveguide structures and a variety of nonlinear waveguiding phenomena have been demonstrated including intensity-dependent prism and grating coupling and quadratic electro-optic modulation.
