Description

Details

Bismuth Silicon Oxide Bi12SiO20 is a pale yellow, photoconductive electro-optic crystal which has found increasingly wide application.

The strong spectral dependence of the photoconductive properties of these crystals and their electrooptic properties makes it possible to develop a wide variety of devices including spatial light modulators, electrooptic sensors, hologram recording devices, phase conjugation, photorefractive incoherent-to-coherent optical converters, pockels readout optical memory (PROM), thin film optical waveguides, photorefraction.
