    We have successfully measured, for the first time, standing waves in a GaAs coplanar waveguide at frequencies of 8.2107 and 12.310 GHz by using harmonic-mixing electro-optic probing. The technique is nondestructive and has great potential in expanding the measuring frequency band to millimeter...

    We report the first observation of a photorefractive gain coefficient as high as 2.6 cm-1 in the undoped liquid-encapsulated Czochralski-grown GaAs crystals at 1.06 μm under a dc electric field of 13 kV/cm without using the moving grating technique. The absorption coefficient of the crystals...
