    Optical waveguiding and cut-off modulation have been observed in a structure based on KNbO3 single crystals. The refractive index changes induced by the electro-optic coefficient r33=64 pm/V allow waveguiding for a voltage of about 20 V. Guided modes have been measured in the wavelength range...

    We propose a high-frequency traveling-wave integrated electro-optic modulator based on a periodically poled LiNbO[sub 3]. The traveling velocity of the optical wave and the electrical wave velocity in the waveguide can be quasimatched due to the periodic structure. Using this design, a...
