electro-optic modulator
An optical device in which a signal-controlled element is used to modulate a beam of light. Note 1: The modulation may be imposed on the phase, frequency, amplitude, or direction of the modulated beam. Note 2: Modulation bandwidths into the gigahertz range are possible using laser-controlled modulators.
