Abstract

A digital electrooptic light deflector is described whose deflection elements are an isotropic plate and an optically birefringent plate immersed in a refractive index matching oil. Total internal reflection or complete transmission takes place at the birefringent plate according to the linear polarization state of the light beam. The deflector is suited for large deflections and a broad band of wavelengths.
