Published: Large impact of strain on electro-optic effect in (Ba, Sr)TiO3 films: experiment and theoretical comparison

Our paper entitled “Large Impact of Strain on the Electro-optic Effect in (Ba, Sr)TiO3 Thin Films: Experiment and Theoretical Comparison” has been published in Appl. Phys. Lett. We experimentally clarified that the EO properties of compressively strained BST thin films are enhanced toward the phase transition temperature modified by the strain. Although the measured EO coefficient rc was less than that theoretically predicted, the experimentally observed strain effect on the EO properties is in good qualitative agreement.
