Paper Abstract

The complex dielectric constants of two ferroelectric crystals SBU and BSKNN have been determlned for millimeter waves betweeen 55 and 110 GHz as a function of temperature. These measurements used Fabry-Perot fringes produced by crystal surface reflections. Absorption was found to decrease markedly upon cooling for incident waves polarized along the crystal polar axis. Since exploitation of the large millimeter wave electooptic coefficients in these crystals is limited at room temperature by absorption losses, these results indicate that cooled crystals can he used for efficient low-loss electrooptic devices.
