Paper Abstract

The requirement for high gate densities, together with the necessity to limit the driving voltage of the gates, leads to gate configurations with unfavorable gate width to material thickness ratios. This results in a nonuniform field distribution between the electrodes and in halfwave voltages significantly higher than calculated from the average halfwave fields known from wider gate configurations. This paper sums up some results of light transmission tests and discusses the light transmission conditions as function of the gate geometry.
