Epitaxially grown BaTiO3 on MgO is a system in which highly confining, relatively low loss channel waveguides can be fabricated. These highly confining waveguides allow large effective index changes to be made with submicron dimensions for applications involving Bragg reflectors or photonic band gap geometries. The first thin film ferroelectric oxide channel waveguide electro-optic modulator is presented and the relative contribution to the electro-optic effect from space charge polarization is discussed.
