Abstract

A new approach for finding configurations for measuring quadratic electro-optic effect in noncentrosymmetric crystals without any background of a linear electro-optic response is presented. This approach utilizes a generalized form of Fresnel’s wave vectors equation. The method allows the modulation of the fast and slow waves in the crystal to be considered separately. An example is given for the lithium niobate crystal.
