    This paper presents and compares two methods for spatially resolved 2D-measurement of optical losses in laseractive and nonlinear optical crystals. In the first method, the losses are determined from the decrease of the finesse of an optical resonator when the crystal is inserted. The second...

    A new method for studying the linear electro-optic effect of isotropic crystals is described. Alternating voltage of low frequency is applied to the crystal, placed between a polarizer and analyzer. The direct and the alternating signals are measured at different positions of the analyzer. A...

    Artificial voids were introduced at bonding interfaces to study how processing parameters affected the healing mechanism of interfacial voids in GaAs wafer bonding. These voids were created by placing unpatterned wafers in contact with topographically patterned wafers. During the bonding...

    We show that the organic salt 4-N,N-dimethylamino-4′-N′-methyl-stilbazolium tosylate (DAST) is a very interesting material for electro-optic applications in the near infrared. The electro-optic coefficients, namely r111, r221, r331, r113, r223, and r333, were determined in the...
