Paper Abstract

In this letter, we report a new electro-optic (EO) polymer film DMACB/PEK-c. After poling of the film the refractive indices nt and nn, viz. the in-film-plane and the normal-to-film plane indices of refraction at 0.63-micrometer and the thickness d were determined using the quasi-waveguide m-line method. The electric field-induced changes in the refractive indices of the film, (delta) nt and (delta) nn, were also independently measured when an electric field was applied normal to the film plane. The EO coefficients of the film, (gamma) 13 and (gamma) 33, are found to be 32.9 pm/V and 82.6 pm/V respectively.
