Abstract

A recently proposed technique representing a combination of digital imaging laser interferometry with a classical four-point bending method is applied to a canonical nonlinear optical crystal, LiNbO3, to precisely determine a full matrix of its piezo-optic coefficients (POCs). The contribution of a secondary piezo-optic effect to the POCs is investigated experimentally and analyzed theoretically. Based on the POCs thus obtained, a full matrix of strain-optic coefficients (SOCs) is calculated and the appropriate errors are estimated. A comparison of our experimental errors for the POCs and SOCs with the known reference data allows us to claim the present technique as the most precise.
