Paper Abstract

In the paper a Y-cut Ti--diffused lithium niobate planar waveulde is considered. The field propagates in the direction inclined to the optic axis, so instead of pure TE or TM modes hybrid modes occur. As TE-like modes leak into the substrate we deal with TM-like hybrid modes only. By using WKB method we obtain approximate formulae expressing fields both inside the waveguide and in the substrate. We calculate coefficients of coupling between modes of perturbed and unperturbed area. We analyze transmission characteristic of such modulator and discuss effects playing significant role in device effaciericy.
