ABSTRACT
An efficient, damage resistant, guided wave deflector in LiNbO3 has been fabricated by a combination of titanium diffusion, proton exchange in benzoic acid with lithium benzoate, and post-annealing processes. The stability of the waveguide has been confirmed using x-ray rocking curves. The insertion loss of interdigital transducer and the diffraction efficiency were found to depend on the wave number of OH absorption produced by proton exchange.
