Abstract

We propose a method to control the polarization of light by the electro-optic effect in periodically poled lithium niobate. A single integrated chip of Z-cut lithium niobate having two sections is used. The first section is not periodically poled, whereas the second section is. With an electric field applied along the Z axis of the first section and another electric field applied along the Y axis of the second section, light with an arbitrary elliptical polarization can be converted into a fixed linearly polarized state.
