    In this paper, a new type of optical waveguide based on potassium tantalate niobate (KTN) electro-optic crystal is presented. The guiding property of the optical waveguide can be quickly (on the order of nanosecond) tuned and controlled by the applied external electric field, which can be useful for many applications such as broadband ultrafast optical modulators, variable optical attenuators, and dynamic gain equalizers.
