The first observation of optical cutoff in thin-film waveguides is reported. The waveguides consist of thin (~10µ) epitaxial layers of high-resistivity GaAs deposited on lower-resistivity GaAs substrates. The optical cutoff is controlled through the electro-optic effect by applying an electric field across the epitaxial layer.
