Paper Abstract

A mathematical model with graphical output that simulates the change of optical properties of crystals after attaching electrical field is presented in the paper. The model is based on the theory of anisotropy and electrooptical effect. Taking into account the input parameters (dimensions of the crystal, refractive indices, matrix of electrooptical coefficients, arrangement of the experiment, direction of electric field, etc.) program generates the picture, displaying output intensity distribution of light that originates from interference of converging polarized light beam in crystal. The resulting light distribution on the picture allows us to decide whether the crystal is suitable for electrooptical modulation. The advantage of the model is its usability for any direction of electrical field (Ex, Ey, Ez).
