Abstract

Ferroelectric domain engineering in lithium niobate (LN) is a subject of extensive research mainly for the fabrication of quasi-phase-matched (QPM) nonlinear optical devices but also for the improvement of linear devices and microstructuring. The most common method for ferroelectric domain engineering is by the application of an external electric field, higher than the coercive field (E Here we present UV laser induced inhibition of ferroelectric domain inversion where spatially selective preexposure of the +z face of congruent LN samples inhibits domain inversion in this area upon the application of an external electric field. In these experiments the two steps of i) UV illumination and ii) E-field application are separated; the application of the external electric field can take place long after (days-months) after the UV illumination.
