Abstract

The combination of light with external electric fields has been successfully used for the domain engineering of ferroelectric lithium niobate crystals [1,2]. It has been shown that whereby the application of the electric field is delayed with respect to the illumination of the crystal. Furthermore, the local coercive field reduction becomes fixed after the first poling cycle. Hence, the initially illuminated and domain inverted regions will re-invert at lower voltages for subsequent poling cycles. The most significant implication of the latency is the decoupling of the laser illumination and E-field application steps which significantly simplifies the experimental setup and allows for high resolution light patterning, e.g. using a phase mask.
