Paper Abstract

The electric fields of bulk (100) and surface (111) GaAs high-voltage photoconductive switches were imaged utilizing the electro-optic effect of the semi-insulating GaAs substrate. Experimental methodology for obtaining the images is described along with a self-calibrating data reduction algorithm. Use of the technique for observing fabrication defects and time dependent field nonuniformities is shown.
