Abstract

The effect of the polarization state on electro-optic coupling is studied by using the wave coupling theory of the linear electro-optic effect. The numerical results show that the polarization state obviously influences the electro-optic coupling. The conditions for realizing perfect coupling are emphasized. As an application of perfect coupling, a novel polarization rotator, which can rotate the polarization of a light beam with an arbitrary angle but keep the output intensity unchanged, is presented.
