A Pockels cell alters the polarisation state of light passing through it when an applied voltage induces birefringence changes in an electro-optic crystal such as KD*P and BBO. When used in conjunction with polarisers, these cells can function as optical switches, or laser Q-switches. Frequently, laser cavities incorporate Q-switches to shorten the output pulse, resulting in a light beam with enhanced peak intensity.
