Abstract : A theoretical discussion is given of the most important methods than can be realized by means of crystals exhibiting the linear electrooptical effect. Although this effect (the so called Pockels effect) has been known for some time, its potential for external light modulation has not been considered so far. After describing the basic fundamentals involved, the author describes amplitude modulation with suppressed carrier, amplitude modulation with nonsuppressed carrier, and pulse modulation.
