Linear electro-optical properties of tetragonal BaTiO3
Linear optical susceptibility and clamped linear electro-optical tensor coefficients of tetragonal BaTiO3 are calculated using a formalism based on bond charge theory. Calculated values are in close agreement with experimental data. The covalent Ti-O bonds constituting distorted TiO6 octahedral groups are found to be major contributors to the electro-optic coefficients making them more sensitive than the BaO12 groups for these properties. Orientations of chemical bonds play an important role in determining these properties.
