Electro-optic effect
A characteristic in which the refractive index changes when voltage is applied.
 Ferroelectric material
A material capable of reversing its polarity when voltage is applied. This polarization inversion is used in various applications such as memory and piezoelectric actuators.
Lead zirconate titanate. Formula: Pb(Zr,Ti)O3. Oxidized compound of lead, zirconium, and titanium. Well-known as a ferroelectric material and widely used in a broad range of applications across various fields.
 Three-layer structure
Three-layer structure comprised of the following: strontium ruthenium oxide: SrRuO3(132nm), ceria: CeO2(52nm), and yittria-stabilized zirconia: Y-ZrO2(64nm).
 Electro-optic coefficient
A coefficient that expresses the level of change incurred in a refractive index when voltage is applied. The higher a value is, the larger the level of change of the refractive index.
