Abstract

Many solutions exist for making laser modulators including acousto-optic (AO) and bulk electro-optic (EO) devices. However, another class of modulators based on Bragg diffraction in periodically poled materials offers the potential to overcome disadvantages inherent in the more conventional types, such as low efficiency in the infra-red and high drive voltages. These devices are an extension of early work on grating based EO devices, for example those by Hammer [1] and Barros & Wilson [2], but by making use of periodic poling they allow additional design freedom. This in turn allows fast switching, high efficiency and simple construction as demonstrated in periodically poled lithium niobate at 633nm [3, 4].
