Abstract

This paper presents a measurement of the electro-optic coefficient of CdTe. It is shown that electro-optic properties are constant in the range 8-14 μm, except for a small dip in the response near the absorption band around 6 μm. Measured Meuller matrix spectra are used for determination of retardance as a function of voltage and wavelength. The matrix spectra allows complete characterization of polarization properties including diattenuation, retardance and depolarization.
