Abstract:

The report describes research and development tasks undertaken in the development of a Pockels Effect electro-optic light valve. Two reflex configurations of the light valve are described which provide coaxial light and electron optics, and allow thermal control of the crystal. Immersion and thin lens electron optics are used in different configurations. The electro-optic crystal utilized was KD2PO4 and when operated in a reflex mode provides full modulation with approximately 1700 volts. With analysis and design complete, breadboard light valves and a test assembly were prepared. Developmental problems prevented full evaluation of the designs prepared and only limited test data were taken.
