Pockels cell

Pockels cell

[′päk·əlz ‚sel]
(optics)
A crystal that exhibits the Pockels effect, such as potassium dihydrogen phosphate, which is placed between crossed polarizers and has ring electrodes bonded to two faces to allow application of an electric field; used to modulate light beams, especially laser beams.
