Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Acoustic resonance vibration generated by the inverse piezoelectric effect was investigated in longitudinal KDP electrooptic light shutters driven by a series of high voltage pulses. Although the repetition rate of the driving pulses was far below the mechanical frequencies of the modulator crystals significant resonances were observed.
