Abstract

The paper introduces a new measurement technique called electro-optic interferometry. It is a relatively straightforward direct measurement of the electro-optic phase modulation and is related to the reflection measurement. The technique is carried out to correlate values of the electro-optic coefficients of poled polymers N-methacryloxyethyl-N-methylaminonitrostilbene/methyl methacrylate (DANS/MMA) and dicyanovinyl-hexatriene/methyl methacrylate (DCVHT/MMA). Experimental results and theoretical analysis for the measured tensor ratios r33/r13 of 3,34 for DANS/MMA and 5.9 for DANS/MMA gathered from s-p reflection technique and a reflection modified Mach-Zehnder method are presented.
