We demonstrated a polymeric electrooptic light modulator based on the grating-coupled surface plasmon resonance (SPR) phenomenon. For the device preparation, the side-chain, nonlinear, optical polymer, polymethylmethacrylate with pendant N-methylamino-4′-nitroazobenzene chromophore was used. By switching on and off of the applied voltage, the subsequent variation of SPR was observed clearly, which clearly showed the feasibility of our concept.
