Some ferroelectrics such as PLZT with impurity dopants induce a high voltage under near-ultraviolet radiation. It was found that donor-type dopants situated onto the B-site of the perovskite structure enhance this photovoltaic response in PLZT ceramics. Using a donor-doped photovoltaic PLZT(3/52/48) plate with a transparent electrooptic PLZT(9/65/35) chip mounted, all optical control devices, modulators and deflectors, have been trial constructed.
