Abstract

An electro-optically active hybrid solgel doped with Disperse Red 13 has been developed by use of a simple solvent-assisted method. It permits a high loading concentration and has low optical loss at 1550 nm. A channel waveguide amplitude modulator has been fabricated by use of active and passive hybrid solgel materials. The device shows an electro-optic coefficient of 14 pm/V at 1550 nm and stable operation.
