Paper Abstract

In this paper, within the spectrum range from 351 nm to 799 nm, the different reductions of nucleation field induced by the focused continuous irradiation with different light intensity are achieved in congruent LiNbO3 crystals. The reduction proportion increases exponentially with decreasing the irradiation wavelength, and decreases exponentially with increasing the irradiation wavelength. Basing on photo-excited effect, we propose a proper model to explain the mechanism of light-induced domain nucleation in congruent LiNbO3 crystals.
