Evaluation of Non-Diagonal Components of the Pockels Tensor for Photorefractive Sn2P2S6 Crystal

Section: Optics, lasers, and quantum electronics
Original Author's Text: English

Abstract: The technique of evaluation of the non-diagonal components r42 and r62 of the Pockels tensor for a monoclinic photorefractive crystal is developed and used for Sn2P2S6.

Key words: Pockels tensor, photorefractive crystal.
