Abstract

We describe the fabrication of a Mach–Zehnder optical modulator in Li Nb O 3 by femtosecond laser micromachining, which is composed of optical waveguides inscripted by a femtosecond laser and embedded microelectrodes subsequently fabricated using femtosecond laser ablation and selective electroless plating. A half-wave voltage close to 19 V is achieved at a wavelength of 632.8 nm with an interaction length of 2.6 mm . This simple and cost-effective technique opens up new opportunities for fabricating integrated electro-optic devices.
