Abstract
The elasto-optical behavior of polymers is investigated by measuring the optical anisotropy in waveguides of this material. The influence of temperature as well as mechanical deformation are taken into account as sources of stress induced birefringence. From this knowledge a novel way of acousto-optical modulation is derived and a device is presented. The performance of it is strongly frequency dependent.
