Abstract
A simple procedure is developed for the measurement of the differential quadratic electro-optic coefficient, R33, by two-beam polarization (TBP) interferometry. It is shown that a TBP interferometer can be used for measuring the Kerr coefficient of a thin film with a strong Fabry-Perot effect. The measured values of the differential effective Kerr coefficient, R33 of lead zirconate titanate 52/48 thin film lie inside the interval between -0.5 * 10-18 m2/V2 and +1.7 * 10-18 m2/V2 for the external DC field from -160 kV/cm to 160 kV/cm, in agreement with the known data. The correlation between differential electro-optic coefficients and field-induced birefringence is discussed.
