We propose a new electrooptic antenna design using organic polymer to receive microwave signals. In this paper we present the characterization of an electrooptic organic polymer. We measured the dielectric constant at microwave frequencies, and the electrooptic coefficient. We measured values of r33 of 3.35 pm/V at 1310 nm and 1.98 pm/V at 1550 nm. The goal of the electrooptic antenna design is to obtain maximum microwave and optical interaction. We propose a novel approach based on resonance effect in both optical and microwave domain. For the optical resonance effect we use a Fabry-Perot cavity, and a patch structure as microwave resonator.
