Paper Abstract

A novel crosslinkable polyurethane is used as the core layer of the electro-optic (E-O) modulator. The refractive index and dispersion of this material have been detected by analyzing the F-P oscillation in transmission spectra. Calculated results from the effective index method are given to design the Mach-Zehnder and straight 5-layer ridge waveguide device (including the metal electrodes). With light at 1.31 micrometers being fiber coupled into waveguide, the mode properties of these devices have been demonstrated in a micron control system. The guided mode is accordant with the theoretical analysis.
