Abstract

We discuss the maximum theoretical resolution of a single interface, electro-optically controllable beam deflector in domain-engineered LiNbO3 and report on experimental results for implementation of devices optimized either for maximum resolution or for maximum deflection angle. For the resolution optimized device we observed ∼50 resolvable spots for a ±1250-V range, which to our knowledge is a report of one of the highest ratios of resolution per volt from a solid-state electro-optic beam deflector.
