Paper Abstract

Optical studies of phase modulators, polarizers and directional couplers realized in X-cut LiTa03 fabricated by the proton-exchange method (PEM) are described. The ability to temperature adjust the coupling lengths of optical directional couplers is discussed in detail. The above guided-wave optical components can be integrated to perform certain optical signal processing functions such as extracting the rotation rate information in fiber-optic gyroscopes.
