    In this letter, we investigate the feasibility of tunable lithium niobate (LiNbO3) photonic crystals. The optical response through a LiNbO3 photonic structure is theoretically determined in order to obtain a photonic band gap with optimal tunability. We show by means of a finite difference time...

    Several fine lines appeared on the surface of LiNbO3 single crystals grown perpendicularly to the (112) plane from the melt. They ran approximately parallel to the pulling axis from the middle of the cylindrical wall to the tail without terminating in the boules. X-ray analysis showed them to be...

    Light-induced space-charge fields in lithium niobate crystals are used to trap and manipulate dielectric particles on the surface of such crystals. Without any external voltage source, strong field gradients are present in the proximity of the crystal surface. These are used to trap particles...
