We consider the electro-optic effect in an unbalanced AlGaAs/GaAs Fabry- Perot resonator. The resonator structure allows simultaneous enhancement of the electrooptic effect and the total reflectance. These properties are essential for development of a miniature electro-optic probe. We demonstrate and characterize a compact 3.31 μm long electro-optic probe based on the unbalanced AlGaAs/GaAs microresonator.
