Kerr Cell

Electro-optical device constructed from a crystal with attached electrodes used to modulate a laser beam. A phase delay of a laser transmitting through the crystal is modulated by applying a variable electric voltage, causing birefringence. The change is proportional to the square of the field, which is known as the Kerr effect.
