An unbalanced Fabry–Pérot resonator is proposed as a miniature electro-optic probe. The resonator allows simultaneous enhancement of the electro-optic effect and the total reflectance at the resonance wavelength. We demonstrate a compact 3.31 μm long electro-optic probe based on the unbalanced AlGaAs/GaAs microresonator.
