Abstract
In this paper, a unique polarization independent athermal electro-optic modulator using lithium niobate, LiNbO3, and/or lithium tantalite, LiTaO3 crystals is presented. The modulator uses a unique sandwich configuration, in which a pair of lithium niobate crystals are bonded together and an embedded electrode is sandwiched in between them. By applying a proper electric field, the output intensity of the device can be continuously adjusted independent of polarization state of incoming light beam and the ambient temperature.
