Abstract

An organic polymer-based monolithic integrated waveguide device with dual functions of electro-optic (EO) modulation and optical amplification is demonstrated. In this Letter, the dual functions are achieved by employing EO polymer as the waveguide upper cladding and organic optical amplified material as the waveguide core layer. Based on this dual-functional waveguide structure, the waveguide amplifier and the EO switch are successfully designed and fabricated on a ${{\rm SiO}_2}$-Si substrate. An optical gain of 5.8 dB at the wavelength of 1535 nm is obtained in the dual-functional polymer waveguide, and the EO switch based on the dual-functional polymer waveguide also presents a high-speed response time of ${\sim}{10}\;{\rm ns}$.
