Paper Abstract

This paper reports on the performance of devices based on current generations of photonic polymers, including passive devices, high-speed electro-optic devices and slow-speed thermo- optic devices. A better understanding of polymer waveguide design and processing resulted in a considerable improvement in device performance. The active devices now show high extinction coefficients (> 27 dB), and low switching voltages (5V) and switching powers (30 mW) for electro-optic and thermo-optic devices respectively.
