Paper Abstract

We report new measurements on LiNbO3 integrated optical circuits using two setups based on the use of a low-coherence light source. Fundamental limits of an all-fiber optical low-coherence reflectometry setup are outlined, and a complete analysis of the measured optical parameters of the circuits and their effects is presented. We also report measurements related to a polarization-axis misalignment of pigtailed LiNbO3 components.
