Optical control of electric-field poling in LiTaO3

Ross, G.W., Smith, P.G.R. and Eason, R.W. (1997) Optical control of electric-field poling in LiTaO3 Applied Physics Letters, 71, (3), pp. 309-311. (doi:10.1063/1.119557).

Record type: Article


We present a room temperature technique for optically inducing periodic domain-inverted structures in bulk (0.2mm thick) LiTaO3. By simultaneous application of an electric field and patterned illumination using UV wavelengths (351nm and 364nm) we demonstrate modulation of the resulting domain profile. We discuss the origins of the observed optical effect and describe our results from repeated domain switching, by cycling the electric field
