Electrooptic Beam Deflection Using The Leaky Mode Of A Planar Wave-Guide
Engineering, Electrical & Electronic; Optics; Physics, Applied
We have demonstrated electrooptic beam deflection using the leaky mode of a TiO2 thin film waveguide in optical contact with a LiNbO3 crystal. Initial measurements yielded a deflection efficiency of 0.34 mrad/kV and suggest potential for more than an order of magnitude improvement. By depositing the waveguide directly onto the electrooptic crystal, a miniature and rugged device can be fabricated that has the potential for high-speed operation and an angular deflection efficiency equal to or higher than that of currently available bulk devices.
