Electro-optic modulator (EOM) is an optical device in which a signal-controlled component exhibiting the electro-optic effect is applied to alter a beam of light. In addition, the modulation may be imposed on the frequency, phase, and polarization or amplitude of the beam. The market for electro-optic modulators is segmented on the basis of type which includesfree-space modulators, phase and intensity modulators, liquid crystal modulators, analog modulators phase modulators, amplitude modulators and polarization modulators among others. The market is segmented on the basis of application which includes imaging and data recorders, polarization rotators, disk recorders and thermally compensated devices among others. The market for electro-optic modulators has been segmented geographically into Asia Pacific, Europe, North America, South America and Middle East and Africa.
Electro-optic modulator is a device which is used for controlling the phase, polarization and power of a laser beam with an electrical control signal. It primarily consistsof one or two pockels cells, and additional optical elements like polarizers. Phase modulators are one of the most common kinds of electro-optic modulators. It has wide range of applications for instance stabilizing as well as monitoring a resonance frequency of an optical resonator.High end electronic devices are one of the major application areas of electro-optic modulators. Modulating the power of a laser beam as well as frequency stabilization of laser are some of the major application field of electro-optic modulators market. Increasing demand for advanced and advanced devices is acting as a major driver for the electro-optic modulators market globally.
