Ammonium Dihydrogen Arsenate (ADA)

  • J. T. Milek
  • M. Neuberger


Ammonium dihydrogen arsenate (ADA) has been considered a potential electro-optic material and has been explored by a number of investigators for modulation purposes. The amount of available data and information is quite limited when compared to other electrooptic materials. Yap and Bicknell reported ADA to have high bandwidth performance characteristics.
