The objective of this project is to develop a process of manufacture and characterization of graphene-based electro-optical modulator with the structure of a FET (Field Effect Transistor) on a waveguide, where electric gate voltage (Vg) is applied on the device in order to modulate the optical signal. The optical modulator will consist of a graphene CVD (Chemical Vapor Deposition) layer transferred to the polished side of an optical fiber, which called D-shaped optical fiber and covered by ionic liquid with the function of dielectric and gate contact. This sample is fixed on a silica substrate between two metallic contacts, which will have the function of source and drain. The performance of the electro-optical graphene modulator is going to be evaluate by considering three important parameters: frequency modulation (f), the gate voltage (Vg), and the modulation depth (Pmod), whose is calculated by the absorption difference between the two propagation modes, TE and TM.
