The transverse electro-optic effect in antiferroelectric lead zirconate thin films grown on fused quartz is observed. The birefringence shift as a function of the external electric field exhibits a characteristic response that is related to the electric-field-induced antiferroelectric-to-ferroelectric structural transition.
