Paper Abstract

Pockels and Kerr cells were fabricated by growing N-(4- nitrophenyl)-L-prolinol crystal films between two transparent fused quartz plates on which indium-tin-oxide layers were deposited. Both linear and quadratic electro- optic effects of the crystals with thickness of 5 and 10 micrometers were examined by an ac modulation method. Large modulation signals were observed with a low driving voltage, the figure of merit of the electro-optic phase retardation were estimated to be 8.0 X 10-11 m/V. It is suggested that the electro-optic cells are promising for application because of their durability, relative easy manipulation during crystal growth and high figure of merit.
