|Issue Date:||1-May-2008||Citation:||Lim, B.C., Phua, P.B., Lai, W.J., Hong, M.H. (2008-05-01). Fast switchable electro-optic radial polarization retarder. Optics Letters 33 (9) : 950-952. ScholarBank@NUS Repository. https://doi.org/10.1364/OL.33.000950||Abstract:||A fast and switchable electro-optic radial polarization retarder (EO-RPR) fabricated using the electro-optic ceramic Pb(Mg1/3Nb 2/3)O3-PbTiO3 is presented. This EO-RPR is useful for fast and switchable generation of a pure cylindrical vector beam. When used together with a pair of half-wave plates, the EO-RPR can change circularly polarized light into any cylindrical vector beam of interest, such as radially or azimuthally polarized light. Radially and azimuthally polarized light with purities greater than 95% are generated experimentally. The advantages of using EO-RPR include fast response time, low driving voltage, and transparency in a wide spectral range (500 to 7000 nm). © 2008 Optical Society of America.||Source Title:||Optics Letters||URI:||http://scholarbank.nus.edu.sg/handle/10635/82347||ISSN:||01469592||DOI:||10.1364/OL.33.000950|
