The Study of the Surface Distribution of the Electrooptical Properties of the Medium by Reflected Light

  • A. V. KniazkovEmail author


The results of the experimental study of the surface distribution of the electrooptic coefficients of crystals LiNbO3, SBN and PLZT-ceramics are described. The induced birefringence in medium was created by an alternating field. The harmonic analysis of reflected laser light was used. The light was reflected from the front face of the transverse cell of the electro-optical medium. The transverse cells were made in the form of planar and three-dimensional flat capacitors. The homogeneity of the surface distribution of electro-optical coefficients of the medium is estimated.
