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
