We present design and fabrication considerations for a vertically integrated electro-optic polymer modulator. The hybrid design incorporates both passive and active core segments for optimized transmission and modulation of an optical signal. When compared to traditional structures, this vertically integrated modulator potentially reduces fiber coupling and propagation losses by more than 10 dB for a 6 cm structure while maintaining a minimized V(pi ).
