    We have conducted comparative studies of the Raman spectra of lithium niobate (LiNbO3) crystals of different compositions for excitation in the visible and near IR regions. We have observed that the photorefractive effect is one of the factors leading to line broadening. For this reason, the...

    We have studied the Raman spectra of nominally pure lithium niobate single crystals with congruent, near-stoichiometric, and stoichiometric compositions. The stoichiometric crystals have been grown by different procedures: from melts of congruent composition containing K2O (4.5 and 6 wt %) as an...
