Paper Abstract

The use of the proton-exchange method (PEM) for optical waveguide formation in LiNbO3 and LiTaO3 is reviewed. Problems associated with waveguides fabricated by concentrated benzoic acid melts are outlined. The use of diluted benzoic acid melts and annealing to reduce or eliminate the problems is discussed. Finally passive and active waveguide devices formed by the PEM are described.
