This letter describes a new nondestructive measurement technique—cw electro-optic probing, and reports results of experiments on GaAs coplanar waveguide sample. The technique is simple in instrumentation and convenient in applications. We believe that it can become a powerful tool for studying the electric field in various devices and integrated circuits.
