Paper Abstract

A novel fast tunable electro-optic (EO) polymer waveguide grating is proposed and designed. Its resonant wavelength can be linearly tuned by first-order EO effect with a high sensitivity of 6.1pm/V. Its spectrum characteristics depend strongly on many grating parameters, such as refractive index modulation, modulation function, grating period and period number. Material selection, fabrication technology, EO tuning ability and polarization dependence of EO polymer waveguide grating are also discussed. This waveguide grating not only overcomes the shortages of optic fiber gratings, such as slow wavelength tuning ability, and large-scale integration inconveniency, but has many advantages, such as high resonant wavelength tune sensitivity, same fabrication technology as semiconductor, and polarization independence.
