Abstract

Investigations have extended the capability of electric field induced second harmonic generation (SHG) to measure ultrafast electric pulses and time-varying microwave electric fields, with a time resolution limited only by the laser pulse duration. Two interrelated advances in this method for probing electric fields are described: the scheme for linearizing the relationship between the electric field and the SHG intensity and an approach for determining the vector nature of the electric field. Measurements were carried out in silicon samples to demonstrated experimentally these improvement in the technique.
