    A model is proposed for photo- and thermally induced processes in lithium niobate crystals. The model is based on the presence of structural defects formed as a result of departure of the crystal composition from stoichiometry. Defects of the type Nb[sub Li] -Nb[sub Li] are introduced and the...
