Design of a new photomixer based on electro-optic polymer

A new photomixer based on the nonlinear behavior of an electro-optic polymer material is proposed here. The microwave frequency is generated by mixing two optical signal waves propagating simultaneously inside an optical waveguide made of the crosslinked PMMA-DR1 electro-optic copolymer; the cladding layers are made of NOA material and the microwave signal… CONTINUE READING
