Paper Abstract

The wide compositional variability of the LiNb03 phase in terms of Li/Nb ratio and oxygen content can be used to optimize the processing of optoelectronic devices. Interactions of these two types of nonstoichiometry can lead to unforeseen consequences, however. As an example, it is shown that reduction drives LiNb03 toward the Li20-rich phase boundary, and experimental observation suggests that this can result in phase separation and loss of transparency.
