Abstract

While several techniques to achieve ferroelectric domain inversion in materials such as lithium niobate (LN) and lithum tantalate (LT) have been successfully demonstrated over the past years, even the 'best' established technique of electric field-induced domain inversion (E-field poling) fails when domain inversion at periodicities of a few microns and below are desired. To overcome the limitations associated with electric field poling, we have been investigating the feasibility of an alternative route, which we refer to as light-assisted E-field poling (LAP).
