It is proposed and demonstrated that fiber-optic Mach–Zehnder interferometer measures accurately electro-optic coefficients of, not only poled polymer thin films, but also poled polymer waveguides. Furthermore, the tensor components, both r13 and r33, of electro-optic coefficient can be measured simultaneously.
