Abstract

Experimental determination of the electro-optic coefficient r 13 of a lithium niobate crystal is described. The crystal in this experiment is z cut, used as a substrate for a Fabry-Perot etalon. I computed the r 13 coefficient from the measured voltage tuning curve of the Fabry-Perot etalon. It is found that the measured value of r 13 is lower than most of the reported values in literature.
