Abstract
Organic nonlinear optical materials continue to hold promise for electro-optic applications. However, the requirements of devices such as phase shifters, modulators, and optical switches, place stringent constraints on the magnitude of the electro-optic coefficients (rij), optical loss, processability, and physical robustness of the electro-optic materials. The design criterion for a phase shifter, based on polymeric guest-host systems or thin film organic crystals, are presented. Both channel and slab waveguide configurations are discussed, with their associated coupling and propagation problems.
