On the theory of the linear electro-optical effect in cubical crystals

  • F. I. Fedorov
  • L. M. Barkovskii


The linear electro-optical effect in cubical crystals of acentric classes is considered by an approximate covariant method. Simple analytic expressions for the induced optic axes and for the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of the inverse dielectric tensor are obtained for all directions of the electric field in these crystals. The method used enables one to determine the above quantities with a high degree of accuracy. The cases where the electric field rotates in planes orthogonal to the crystallographic directions and in the planes of symmetry of the crystal are considered in detail.
