Paper Abstract

Reflection-mode optical phase modulators based on the structure of thin ferroelectric interferometers (TFIs) have been demonstrated. The tunable TFIs in a Gires-Tournois configuration were fabricated entirely with thin film processing techniques, resulting in solid-state and high-speed phase modulators with low driving voltage. Phase tunable spatial light modulators (SLMs) and laser beam steering devices can be constructed with variations of the basic TFI structure. Recent experimental data on the SLMs and beam steering devices are presented. Design principles, fabrication procedure and the preliminary performance of the devices are described.
