Abstract : This report covers the development of theoretical knowledge and expertise necessary for the authors' 1997 dissertation research involving integrated optic waveguide modulators fashioned from polymers. Included is the 1997 plan/schedule for research into the polarization properties of polymeric waveguides and also the schedule for developing a more efficient modulator. This research supports the development of the Fiber Optic Gyroscope (FOG).
