Abstract

A single-mode-fiber phase modulator was constructed by contacting the fiber with a lapped glass capillary tube. The capillary’s inner surface provides a long, effectively semicircular contact region to the fiber, allowing throughput of acoustic waves launched from a thin-film ZnO transducer fabricated directly onto the capillary’s other lapped face. The device operated at a center frequency of 416 MHz with a FWHM bandwidth of 14 MHz. The maximum phase shift was 0 . 033 rad / mW, with a largest measured value of 1.2 rad at 1.3-W input electrical power.
