Paper Abstract

Two methods for measuring the photorefractive susceptibility of LiNb03 waveguides are reviewed. Data for waveguides formed by means of Ti indiffusion and also by proton exchange techniques are discussed. The photorefractive effect in channel-waveguide devices is analyzed by means of a model which accurately predicts the time evolution of photorefrac-tive effects. The response of guided-wave Mach-Zehnder interferometers is experimentally evaluated, and the magnitudes of the photovoltaic and photoconductive components which com-prise the photorefractive effect are quantitatively determined. While these initial results were obtained for channel-waveguide devices, the model is believed to be extendable to planar-waveguide devices as well.
