Pockels 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, which causes birefringence. The change is linearly proportional to the electric field, which is known as the Pockels effect.
