Fully Integrated Magneto Optic in Fiber Micro Modulator

Yhonathan Azougi, Arkady Rudnitsky, Garry Berkovic and Zeev Zalevsky

In this paper we present the construction and the preliminary testing of an integrated magneto optic in-fiber modulator. The modulation concept is based upon insertion of Fe micro particles into holes drilled in an optical single mode fiber reaching the fiber’s core, and spatial translation of the particle in the hole, by means of external alternating magnetic field. Preliminary results show an extinction ratio of about -4dB.
