Abstract

A light beam is modulated by deflection within an optical waveguide utilizing a material, such as a liquid crystal. The index of refraction of the liquid crystal is altered in response to an electrical field,

A light beam is modulated by deflection within an optical
waveguide utilizing a material, such as a liquid crystal.
The index of refraction of the liquid crystal is altered in
response to an electrical field,

A variety of electrically switchable functions are possible
corresponding to variously shaped electrodes in an integrated
optics circuit such as, for example, multiplication, division,
linear and non~linear spatial intensity transformations and
switching.
