Title: High-speed, low voltage, miniature electro-optic modulators based on hybrid photonic-crystal/polymer/sol-gel technology
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Contract: FA9550-07-C-0072
Award Amount: $99,999.00
 

Abstract:

TIPD, LLC and the University of Arizona propose to develop new miniature electro-optic modulators with ultrafast response of 100GHz and low drive voltage of less than 0.1V. In this work, we will leverage our unique expertise and compound capabilities in fabricating silicon-based planar photonic devices, in-house developed technology of infiltrating planar nano-structures with electro-optic polymers, and novel hybrid polymer/sol-gel device architecture that allows for 100% polymer poling efficiency resulting in multi-fold reduction of drive voltage and power consumption
