Paper Abstract

A simple fabrication technique, readily extensible to volume manufacturing, is presented to produce an electro-optically active fiber segment hat can be simply integrated into optoelectronic devices. The fabrication technique offers a dielectric isolation structure surrounding the fiber to a low high field poling, a pair of electrodes used both for poling and for inducing an electro-optic effect, and needs of the fiber unaffected by the fabrication and available for splicing to additional fiber sections. An electro-optic coefficient, including overlap between the nonlinearity and the fiber mode, as high as 0.4 pm.V was obtained by combined temperature/electric field poling. The related device applications are discussed.
