Abstract
DNA, a biopolymer processed from purified marine-based waste products, has been explored in recent years for photonic applications. Among these, using a DNA-surfactant biopolymer as a conductive cladding layer in electro-optic polymer waveguide modulators has been proposed due to the biopolymer's low optical loss and relatively high electrical conductivity compared to current polymer materials. Electric-field contact poling measurements using a DNA-surfactant biopolymer as a cladding layer have been made. The DNA cladding layer yielded high poling efficiency and the results are reported here.
