Abstract
Hybrid sol-gel/polymer electro-optic modulators with horizontal taper structure have been designed and fabricated. Optical transition between sol-gel passive waveguides and electro-optic polymer waveguides via horizontal tapers has been realized in the electro-optic modulators. With 1cm interaction length these hybrid electro-optic modulators have been measured to have a half-wave voltage of 8.91 V (dual drive 4.45 V), an extinction ration of 21.2dB and an optical insertion loss of 11.8 dB.
