Abstract

Besides the Pockels effect, crystals of the dihydrogen phosphate type (symmetry class 4¯2 m) also exhibit an indirect electro-optic effect or piezo-optic effect. This effect is examined both experimentally and theoretically, and expressions for the spatial distribution, amplitude, and frequency response of modulation are derived for the case of a (zxt)0°-cut square plate. The frequency response is found to depend upon the light-beam diameter. The amplitude of the piezo-optic resonances is found to be nearly independent of frequency.
