Simulation and Design of an Organic Quantum Film Electrooptic Switch


Electerical Engineering, Amirkabir University of Technology


In this paper the simulation and design of a quantum-film electro-optic switch is considered. This photonic device, is made from a new organic dipolar material called MNA or 2-methyl-4 nitroaniline, which possesses a high merit in comparison with it's inorganic counterparts (e.g. LiNbO3, GaAs, InSb, Quartz, etc). Montecarlo method is used to simulate the photon-it-electron interaction in this material and the introduced physical model is based on wave-particle nature of light to demonstrate the Pokiels' Electro-optic effect in M7NA optical switch. The main advantages of this design are wide optical bandwidth (0.5-2 microns wavelength), low power consumption and high speed data transmission.
