Paper Abstract

Fabrication characterization and operation stability of Zn-indiffused integrated optical devices in lithium niobate are described. Two examples of the operation of active waveguides fabricated by this technique are presented: laser operation of Nd3+ doped channel waveguides, and blue light generation by Quasi Phase Matching (QPM) using periodically structured substrates. In both cases ne-polarized high power denstiy CW-optical beams are involved and stable room temperature operation is sustained.
