The electro-optic (EO) properties of monoclinic BaTeMo2O9 (BTM) single crystals are studied using the interference technique by applying the external electric field. The measured room temperature free EO coefficients at 632.8 nm are 10.2 and 9.0 pm/V for γ12 and γ41, respectively. The EO effect (-12ni3γijE) of BTM is about three times as high as that of KH2PO4 (KDP) crystal, which makes it a very promising candidate for the EO applications.

    EMI shielding materials are often used to limit the penetration of electromagnetic field into space. These shielding materials block electromagnetic radiations with barrier made of conductive materials. Thus, with effective shielding in room or building, external electromagnetic field are not...

    It is shown that a threshold spatially periodic reorientation of the director by a light field is possible in a planar nematic liquid crystal cell if the ratio of the Frank elastic constants, K 2/ K 1, exceeds a critical value. The periodic director structure arising in the cell leads to a...
