Paper Abstract

We report the first experimental results on a new (100) waveguide geometry for use as a electro-optic polarization modulator in III-V semiconductors. Theoretical investigations have predicted large electro-optic modal conversion efficiencies (up to 100%) at low voltages and with short guide lengths. Our preliminary experiments on A1GaAs/GaAs demonstrated 8% conversion, and appear to follow theory closely. With minor improvements, higher conversion efficiencies are expected.
