Linear Electro-Optic (Pockels) Effect in Hexamethylenetetramine: Influence of Crystal Strain

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

The linear electro-optic (Pockels) effect has been measured in the organic molecular crystal hexamethylenetetramine. Crystals were grown from water, alcohol, and chloroform solutions and from the vapor. Electro-optic coefficients computed from Sénarmont-compensator data range from 0.71 × 10−10 cm V−1 to 0.8 × 10−10 cm V−1 or, equivalently, in terms of half-wave voltage: V1/2λ = 85±5 kV. Crystal strain is not responsible for the much wider variation reported in the literature. Electric-field inhomogeneities are considered a more likely cause.
