Abstract

We present a summary of measured characteristics of lanthanum-doped lead zirconium titanate (PLZT) compound in its mechanical housing. It is expected that the PLZT device will be used as the main component in an ultrafast electro-optic switch. We have performed several experiments to measure and calculate the following characteristics: optical power transmission, thermodynamic effects, switching speed, and dc drift phenomenon.
