Electro-optical and elasto-optical effects
- 2.1k Downloads
This chapter introduces various effects through which the refractive index of a crystal (directly related to its permittivity tensor) can be altered through an external field, such as a static electric field or a strain. These changes to the index induced by an external, freely tailored field, have many applications. Some of these are introduced as the various effects are discussed.
