Paper Abstract

Depolarization of single-mode channel waveguides on lithium niobate has been measured at a wavelength of 1.3 microns. Y-cut waveguides depolarize in a linear manner, as predicted by theory. Z-cut guides exhibit more random depolarization which is independent of surface roughness, while z-propagating guides exhibit exhibit the largest depolarization. Depolarization is found to be independent of waveguide width.
