Abstract
An analysis is presented of the charge dynamics involved in the poling of electro-optic polymer multi-layer materials. Specifically addressed are the electrical properties of the cladding layers in comparison to those of the active core layer which lead to the largest protection against premature dielectric breakdown during poling, the largest fraction of the applied DC poling field falling across the core during poling, and the largest fraction of the applied AC filed during modulation. Also presented is an in-depth analysis of the voltage-divider effect and the relative merits of conductive versus regular claddings for achieving efficient poling and minimal optical loss.
