Paper Abstract

Early studies of LiNb03 indicated a great potential for a variety of uses based on the ferroelectric, piezo electric, electrooptic, and related properties, all dependent on the availability of single domain material. The actual steps which led to the first preparation of such crystals and the subsequent understanding of poling in this unique material are described.
