Paper Abstract

Electro-optic (EO) polymers have emerged as a new class of materials for integrated optics and lightwave device applications. We provide a concise engineering description of the state of EO polymer materials development and then introduce their application to switchable, guided wave optical interconnections. Such interconnections potentially offer higher routing density, lower noise, lower propagation delay, and the simplification of many problems encountered in the design of high-frequency on- and off-module connections for high-performance electronic systems.
