Abstract

We have developed a novel electro-optically addressable total internal reflection (TIR) switch in a sample of z-cut domain-engineered congruent LiNbO3. Electric field poling has been used to domain invert one half of the sample, producing a sharp boundary between the two anti-parallel domain regions. Such a switch has numerous advantages including ease of fabrication, high switching contrast ratios, (TIR is a 100% efficient process for reflection at an ideal interface), relatively low drive voltages, and a wavelength dependence that is less critical than other electro-optic devices such as Pockels cells.
