Abstract

Second-harmonic interferometry (SHI) is proposed for measuring the electro-optic (EO) coefficients of massive media. It combines the advantages of interferometric techniques with the mechanical stability of single-beam methods, simultaneously skimming the wavelength dispersion of the EO response. For demonstrating the effectiveness of the SHI technique, the EO coefficients r 33 T and r 13 T of the EO crystal lithium niobate are measured simultaneously at 1064 and 532 nm .
