ABSTRACT
The linear electro-optic (EO) coefficients of Pb(Zn[sub 1/3]Nb[sub 2/3])O[sub 3]-PbTiO[sub 3] single crystals over a broad composition range were investigated at temperatures from -20 to 80 °C. The orientation effect on the EO coefficients was also examined. For crystals poled in the <001> direction, a large r[sub 33] was observed near the morphotropic phase boundary (MPB). More importantly, r[sub 33] was found to be independent of temperature for the crystals on the tetragonal side of the MPB. In contrast, r[sub 13] was nearly zero for all compositions examined at all the temperatures. The large r[sub 33] near the MPB and the observed crystal orientation effect of the EO coefficients were also analyzed. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.

    Fabrication of high quality p-type ZnO is the main challenge in recent ZnO research that prevents the practical application of ZnO-based devices in optoelectronics. The mechanism behind is thought to be due to self-compensation of native defects and/or dopant-induced donors. In this report, we...

    Coherent supercontinuum generated from a photonic crystal fiber is applied to near-infrared coherent anti-Stokes Raman scattering (NIR-CARS) microscopy. A clear CARS image of polystyrene beads has been successfully obtained at a wavenumber difference resonant with the CH-stretching vibrational mode.
