Abstract

As the level of complexity and sophistication in modern technological applications increases, the level of material processing which is required has to follow suit. A good example that demonstrates this principle is the silicon-based microelectronics industry where further miniaturization constantly requires again and again new technological solutions. A similar route is being followed by the photonics industry with the obvious example of optical fibre communication: the demand for ever higher data transmission rates requires even more complex optical devices to process them. In this research effort several optical materials, apart from silica, have been put to the test and one of them is lithium niobate. This material is already playing an important role in today’s photonics industry and could become a suitable platform material for advanced integrated photonic applications.
