Paper Abstract

Technology integration of liquid crystal cells for electro-optic modulation has been implemented on the commercial TriPleX photonic platform. Design and fabrication procedure have been optimized for fulfilling the low insertion loss criterion for applications such as space communication and enabling the implementation of compact liquid crystal tuning elements for achieving high integration density. First performance testing of this concept has confirmed low-power consumption switching with 2π phase tuning being obtained within a voltage range of 2.5 V.
