    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).

    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.
