This work presents a study of electro-optic and magneto-optic films made by a Metal-Organic Chemical Liquid Deposition (MOCLD) method. Electro-optic thin film, La-modified Pb(Mg1/3Nb2/3)O3-PbTiO 3 (PLMNT) and magneto-optic thin film, rare earth doped yittrium iron garnet (YIG) have been grown at different conditions. Low temperature growth on buffered semiconductor substrates has been studied for semiconductor device integration. High quality PLMNT film with EO coefficient of I×10 -16 (m/V)2 was obtained with MOCLD. Doped and undoped YIG onto MgO and glass substrates and also onto buffered semiconductors were successfully deposited using MOCLD method. Several of these films had successful rotations that were of device quality. Based on these high quality functional films, two dimensional photonic bandgap waveguide structures were designed and simulated.
