Enhanced electro-optic response in domain-engineered LiNbO3 channel waveguides

Enhanced electro-optic response in domain-engineered LiNbO3 channel waveguides
Enhanced electro-optic response in domain-engineered LiNbO3 channel waveguides
Substantial enhancement (36.7%) of the intrinsic electro-optic coefficient (r_33) has been observed in lithium niobate channel waveguides, which are made to overlap with a pole-inhibited ferroelectric domain. The waveguide and the overlapping ferroelectric domain are both produced by a single UV irradiation process and are thus self-aligning. The enhancement of the electro-optic coefficient effect is attributed to strain, which is associated with the ferroelectric domain boundaries that contain the channel waveguide.

Abstract

Substantial enhancement (36.7%) of the intrinsic electro-optic coefficient (r_33) has been observed in lithium niobate channel waveguides, which are made to overlap with a pole-inhibited ferroelectric domain. The waveguide and the overlapping ferroelectric domain are both produced by a single UV irradiation process and are thus self-aligning. The enhancement of the electro-optic coefficient effect is attributed to strain, which is associated with the ferroelectric domain boundaries that contain the channel waveguide.
