Paper Abstract

The results of measurements of the intrinsic phase-differences of titanium- indiffused lithium niobate waveguides, for use in integrated optics Pockels cell high-voltage sensors, are presented. The dependencies of the intrinsic phase-differences of these waveguides on their lengths and widths are investigated; a change of between 4.9 and 5.9 degree(s)/micrometers /mm was obtained. Also, the change in the intrinsic phase-difference as a function of both temperature and time was investigated; a typical change of 0.02 degree(s)/ degree(s)C/mm was measured and, following a small initial change, the bias was found not to drift with time. Some suggestions for possible post-processing of the output signals, of the integrated optics Pockels cell high-voltage sensors, to increase the dynamic range and to compensate for small changes in the bias, are presented.
