    Abstract. In the present work the fabrication of high-quality LiNbO[sub 3] waveguides, based on Zn diffusion from vapor phase using a two-step diffusion process, has been demonstrated. The optical waveguides fabricated using this method have low propagation losses (less than 0.5 dB/cm measured...
