Abstract
We present different glass ion-exchanged waveguide polarizer configurations using an electro-optic polymer (conjugated PMMA-DR1) overlay. The polarizer function is accomplished by modifying the propagation constant of a guided mode by changing the birefringence induced in the polymer by a poling process. A TE pass polarizer with an extinction ratio of 39 dB, has been realized using a corona poling. Further developments require a better control of the poling process. A TE polarizer structure using poling in the vertical direction have also been tested. A TM polarizer with planar metallic electrodes for poling is presented. Design considerations and fabrication results are presented.
