Abstract

A two-beam polarization (TBP) interferometer with a reflection configuration for measuring the linear electro-optic coefficient is described and investigated experimentally and theoretically. It is shown that a TBP interferometer can be used for measuring the Pockels coefficient of a thin film with a strong Fabry–Perot effect. Relative errors of the simple proposed method for Pockels coefficient measurement are estimated. The TBP interferometer technique is used to measure the effective differential linear electro-optic coefficient re=r33-(no/ne)3r13 of a lead zirconate titanate thin film. The results are in agreement with known data.
