Abstract:High quality BaTiO3 epitaxial thin films on MgO substrates have been grown by pulsed laser deposition (PLD). Both c-axis and a-axis orientated BaTiO3 were studied. Mach-Zehnder (M-Z) optical waveguide modulators have been fabricated by ion beam etching. The BaTiO3 waveguide propagation losses are 1-2 dB/cm. Electro-optic modulation has been demonstrated with Vπ = 6.3 V at a wavelength of 633 nm and Vπ = 9.5 V at a wavelength of 1550 nm for the aaxis samples and with Vπ = 8 V at 633 nm wavelength and Vπ = 15 V … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
