Paper Abstract

We describe the characterization of electro-optic properties of single crystal thin films of organic material N-(4- nitrophenyl)-(L)-prolinol grown by the plate-guided method. Characterization was performed using the longitudinal a.c modulation technique. The half-wave voltage, the figure-of- merit, and the related electro-optic coefficients were estimated to be 3.24 kV, 98 pm/V and 461(pm/V) and 154(pm/V) respectively.
