Abstract

Mode conversion in optically active slab waveguides is studied both theoretically and experimentally. The waveguide is fabricated by homogeneously embedding isotropic and randomly oriented optical active material into a passive polymeric waveguide. The polarization rotation is measured for several configurations of a slab waveguide.
