Ferroelectric domain engineering and micro-structuring of lithium niobate
Lithium niobate (LN) is a nonlinear optical ferroelectric crystal which is widely used by the photonics industry mainly for the production of ultra-fast optical waveguide modulators (for optical telecoms) and for Quasi Phase Matched (QPM) nonlinear frequency generation. Ferroelectric domain engineering is essential for the fabrication of QPM components but can also play an important role in the performance-improvement of optical modulators [1].

Abstract

Lithium niobate (LN) is a nonlinear optical ferroelectric crystal which is widely used by the photonics industry mainly for the production of ultra-fast optical waveguide modulators (for optical telecoms) and for Quasi Phase Matched (QPM) nonlinear frequency generation. Ferroelectric domain engineering is essential for the fabrication of QPM components but can also play an important role in the performance-improvement of optical modulators [1]. Additionally, ferroelectric domain engineering provides a powerful tool for the surface and bulk micro-structuring of this very important optical crystal when combined with conventional chemical etching. This paper will discuss a number of recently developed all optical and optically assisted methods for ferroelectric domain engineering and the subsequent micro-structuring that may be achieved
