Abstract

The Jones matrix calculus is applied to an electro-optic crystal with uniaxial symmetry when the light beam is incident nearly normally on the crystal face. The approach allows one to treat refracted waves and rays that diverge in the crystal and are modulated by an external low-frequency field. The effect of partial interference of overlapping refracted beams is allowed for and calculated for the case of uniform intensity of the beam over its cross section. The method is employed to analyze optical systems containing an imprecisely cut and aligned electro-optic crystal plate.
