Paper Abstract

Proton exchanged planar optical waveguides have been fabricated and characterized in y-cut 4.5 mol% MgO:LiNbO3 crystals using adipic acid as the proton source. These waveguides exhibit a linear-step index profile with a surface index increase (Delta) n of 0.142 measured at the wavelength of 0.633 micrometers . The activation energy Q and the diffusion constant Do were measured to be 73.74 kJ/mol and 9.96 X 107 micrometers 2/h, respectively. The diffusion rate in y-cut substrates is faster than that in z-cut substrates.
