Narrowband filters are particularly demanded in optical signal processing and communication. The purpose of this research is to develop ultra-low operating-voltage and narrow-band active optical filters based on electro-optic periodically poled lithium niobate (EO PPLN) waveguides. In this work, we have successfully implemented a highly efficient Šolc-type optical wavelength filter and a TE ?TM mode converter in the c-band telecomm wavelengths based on EO Ti:PPLN waveguides. This device can have an ultra-low (TTL level) operation voltage, is highly compatible to most telecomm devices, has a simple electrode configuration, and has a narrow band-pass width conformed to the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) grid standard. In the research, we have successfully fabricated low-loss Ti:PPLN channel waveguides using the thermally Ti-diffused method and electric-field poling technique. This device has multiple channels with each allowing for passing an ITU-grid signal in telecomm c-band wavelength. The propagation loss of the Ti:PPLN waveguides were determined to be as small as 0.17 dB/cm. A mode conversion efficiency or a spectral transmittance of as high as 97% at a bandwidth of ~2.6nm was achieved with this 1-cm device at a very low work voltage of 22 V which corresponds to a normalized value of 1.1 V×d (μm)/L(cm). Its temperature tuned wide spectral working range at a tuning rate of was also demonstrated, showing the device the potential of being an electro-optic tunable filter (EOTF). The characterized narrow band-pass width and the capability of wide spectral working range make the developed EO Ti:PPLN waveguide device a powerful and attractive active device, for example, optical communication and signal process applications.
