    We report the infrared operation of a bulk optical Bragg modulator based on electro-optically induced refractive index gratings in z-cut periodically poled lithium niobate. Efficiencies in the first order of 45% for 1064 nm e-polarized light and 30% for o-polarized light were achieved, with...

    We describe a technique for surface domain engineering in congruent lithium niobate single crystals. The method is based on conventional electric-field poling, but involves an intentional overpoling step that inverts all the material apart from a thin surface region directly below the patterned...

    Transmission electron microscope studies of Ti-doped, congruent lithium niobate (LiNbO3) have shown that extended structural faults are only present within the Ti-diffused layer (i.e., the wave guiding region). Structural faults have also been observed in undoped Li-deficient LiNbO3, though not...

    We have found that in connection with photorefraction the Li-rich LiNbo3:Mg (5 mol %) can withstand higher light intensities than the congruent LiNbO3:Mg (5 mol %) and that the improvement is due to the increased photoconductivity with little change in photovoltaic current.

    Proton-exchanged optical waveguides in lithium niobate crystals exhibit a rich variety of structures and phases. It is established that seven H[sub x]Li[sub 1-x]NbO[sub 3] crystalline phases with a lithium niobate structure may form under various conditions of proton exchange and post-exchange...

    Periodically poled lithium niobate crystals doped with transition-metal ions Cr[sup 3+] and Hf[sup 4+], and rare earth ions Er[sup 3+] and Yb[sup 3+] were grown by the Czochralski method. Periodic domain structures were obtained either by rotation-induced growth striations (during off-centered...
