    An electro-optic polymer micro-ring resonator for high speed modulation was designed, realized and characterized. The design of layer-stack and electrodes was done such that modulation frequencies up till 1 GHz should be possible. The device consists of a ridge waveguide, defined in a negative photoresist (SU8), with a poled electro-optic polymeric (PMMA-DR1) ring-resonator vertically coupled to it. The complete layerstack is sandwiched between electrodes to apply an electric field over the ringresonator in order to shift its resonance wavelength. Electro optic modulation was measured up to 50 MHz limited by weak modulation depth. Optimizing the polingprocess will increase the modulation efficiency thereby making modulation frequencies of 1 GHz measurable.
