Abstract

Rubidium titanyl phosphate (RTP) is widely used for electro-optical applications at low switching voltages. RTP is nonhygroscopic and does not induce piezoelectric ringing up to the megahertz range. It has large electro-optic (EO) coefficients and a high damage threshold. We present here the EO coefficient wavelength dispersion measurements in the [550,950]nm spectral range using a method based on spectral interferometry. These data are necessary for, among other things, a quantitative modelization of an EO carrier-envelope phase shifter.
