Abstract

The first experimental results, to our knowledge, for an optical modulator that makes use of an electro-optic polymer located between two thin silver films are presented. The methods used to fabricate the modulator are discussed. Initial results show 18.5% modulation in the intensity of the light reflected off of the modulator at a wavelength of 6328 Å.
