electro-optic

The effects electricity has on optical materials such as a change in refraction or birefringence. The term was coined before "optoelectronic," but both terms are often used synonymously. See refraction, birefringent, photonics, optoelectronic and integrated optics.

electro-optics

Those electronics that use visible or near visible light (e.g., infrared) for guidance or sensing.

It has been determined that the effect of optical activity on the electrooptic process can be eliminated by reversing the effect, which means that light propagating along the optic z-axis should be reversed to propagate along the z-axis.
