Paper Abstract

We report on a new type of glass ion-exchanged waveguide TE polarizer using an electro-optic polymer (conjugated PMMA-DR1) overlay. The polarization function is assured by poling the polymer in the vertical direction using a Corona process. An extinction ratio of 39 dB is obtained at the wavelength of (lambda) equals 1.3 micrometer. The insertion losses of the device are in order of 7 dB. The performance of the polarizer are investigated. Our experimental investigations show a polarization efficiency over than 40 dB.
