Electro-optic devices are devices that manipulate light using electrical signals based on the electro-optic effect (or electro-optic effect). The electro-optic effect is the modification of the optical phase delay (often described with its refractive index) of a medium, caused by an electric field. They are designed to control the properties of light, such as its intensity, polarization, phase, or frequency. Electro-optic devices have emerged as indispensable components across telecommunications, imaging systems, laser technology, and optical instrumentation.

Electro-Optic Device Types include a range of essential components in various fields, such as telecommunications, imaging systems, laser technology, and optical instrumentation. Among these are Electro-Optic Intensity Modulators, Electro-Optic Phase Modulators, Pockels Cell Drivers, and Pockels Cells.

Electro-Optic Intensity Modulators: These devices specialize in regulating the brightness or intensity of light by modulating the amplitude of optical signals in response to electrical signals. Their significance is paramount in optical communication systems, where they encode crucial information onto light signals for efficient transmission.

Electro-Optic Phase Modulators: Phase modulators are devices that control the timing or phase of light waves through electrical modulation. These devices find applications in optical signal processing and sensing tasks, facilitating advancements in diverse technological domains.

Pockels Cells: Pockels cells are components of electro-optic modulation, tasked with governing light polarization. Widely deployed across telecommunications, imaging systems, and laser technology, Pockels cells exemplify the transformative potential of electro-optic devices in modern technology landscapes.

Pockels Cell Drivers: Serving as the driving force behind Pockels cells, these drivers facilitate intricate control over light polarization. Pockels cells, also known as electro-optic modulators, exploit the electro-optic effect to manipulate light polarization, contributing significantly to advancements in laser technology, optical switching, and modulation.
