Electro-Optic Tuneable of Direct Current Voltage in Ring Resonator


Article Preview

In this paper, a new design of the electro-optical tuning voltage in buried fiber ring resonator (BFRR) system is proposed. The crystals of LiNbO3, (Ba, Sr)TiO3, K(Ta, Nb)O3 and KH2PO4 are used as electro-optic core materials. The applied voltage can generate different refractive index deformation when used different electro-optic crystals. Different electro-optic crystals produce distinct maximum power loss within BFRR. The power loss in an electro-optic crystal can be controlled by tuning the applied voltage. The K(Ta, Nb)O3 crystal produce maximum power loss with lower voltage compared to other crystals.
