Abstract

The sensitivity of an electro-optic (EO) field sensor depends inversely on the dielectric constant of the nonlinear crystal. In EO sensors based on lithium niobate the effective value of this dielectric constant is affected by dielectric relaxation effects and is identified with its smaller, high-frequency component. Because of this effect, the EO modulation is significantly enhanced, thus improving the field strength sensitivity.
