Uniaxially patterned (UAP) dielectric layers have an optical anisotropy that can be externally controlled. This paper examines the effects of patterning the cladding or the core layer of a three-layer optical waveguide on the polarization properties of propagating radiation. Particular attention is paid to the case when the core material is a semiconductor with optical gain. A number of devices are discussed based on incorporating a UAP layer in the structure design, such as a polarization-insensitive amplifier, a polarizer, an optically controlled polarization switch, and an optically controlled modal coupler
