Paper Abstract

It has been shown that the lattice-misfit-induced strains in H:LiNbO3 waveguiding layers strongly modify the phase diagram HNbO3-LiNbO3 obtained for powders. Depending on exchange and annealing conditions and crystal cuts, at least the six phases (alpha) , (beta) -, (gamma) -, (delta) -, (zetz) - and (eta) - HxLi1-xNbO3 can exist in single crystal proton-exchanged layers. The high and low temperature modifications were obtained for (alpha) and (beta) - phases. The relationships between crystal lattice parameters of unstrained HxLi1-xNbO3 solid solutions and extraordinary refractive index change have been experimentally determined for the high and low temperature modifications of (alpha) and (beta) phases in proton-exchanged lithium niobate waveguides.
