Abstract

Theoretical analysis indicates that the reflection of obliquely incident light with arbitrary polarization state in the mid-wavelength (3-8 μm) and long-wavelength (8-15 μm) infrared regimes by a lossy, isotropic, dielectric slab backed by a perfect electric conductor can be electrically controlled by covering the dielectric slab by an epitaxial layer of cubic noncentrosymmetric materials, which are normally isotropic dielectric but display the Pockels effect. The reflectances change on the application of a dc electric field parallel to thickness direction of the Pockels cover, without causing depolarization.
