Paper Abstract

As integrated optical components become increasingly available, the need for an understanding of methods for characterization of these devices becomes necessary. This paper discusses several techniques for characterization of Ti:LiNb03 devices including waveguides, polarizers and phase modulators. Measurement aspects common to all devices are discussed such as polarization requirements, wavelength, power restrictions and power measurement. In addition, specific techniques for measurement of optical loss, fiber to chip coupling, optical retardation and polarization extinction are given.
