Abstract : A unified lattice theory of the electro-optic effect in semiconductor crystals, which encompasses the piezo-electric and elasto-optic effects, is presented. Expressions are derived for the constant stress and constant strain electro-optic coefficients and the results are specialized to crystals of the zincblende structure. (Author)
