Paper Abstract

We present the results of analysis of microstructural and optical properties of composite nonlinear optical waveguides made by ion implantation of LiNbO3 with MeV ions of silver. Light guiding properties were studied by the prism coupling method, and nonlinear optical susceptibility was characterized using the Z-scan method. Special attention was paid to the influence of a host material and heat treatment on light guiding, optical absorption, and third order susceptibility.
