Abstract

The results of light beam switching and modulation experiments utilizing electrooptic control of the refractive index of a built-in dielectric channel in a Y-cut LiNbO3 planar waveguide are reported. The resulting device is capable of simultaneously providing a combination of desirable characteristics.
