Abstract

Spectroscopic measurements were used to monitor the optical interference of ordinary (o -ray) waves with extraordinary (e -ray) waves by incidence of plane-polarized light and transmission through piezoelectric crystals (α -quartz, LiNbO3, and LiTaO3). This observation confirms that the rotations of the vibration planes of the o - and e -ray waves originate from the dynamic gratings induced by the electric field of the incident light. This is a self-modulation process of the polarized incident light in piezoelectric crystals.
