    Abstract

    In our Letter [Opt. Lett. 31, 1753 (2006)], we derived, in a very general way, the temporal electric field modifications due to the chi((2)) electro-optic effect; to maintain generality we did not seek to narrow our result to specific experimental conditions, nor did we make any assumptions about birefringence or polarization states. A description of specific experimental conditions can be simply obtained by applying an appropriate Jones matrix calculation. The results noted in the Comment of Yellampalle et al. [Opt. Lett. 32, 1341 (2007)] are no more than a particular application of our general results. (C) 2007 Optical Society of America
