Abstract

A bulk electro-optic (EO) modulator based on the ultrahigh-order guided modes, which are excited in a symmetrical metal-cladding waveguide (SMCW), has been exploited. This kind of mode in a SMCW has high sensitivity to phase shift by changing the refractive index of the guiding layer. Compared with phase modulation via the bulk EO modulator without a waveguide, the applied half-wave voltage is reduced for one magnitude. This work may have practical applications in optical information processes.
