Paper Abstract

Some of the practical applications that have been envisaged for Lithium Niobate Integrated Optics are discussed in the light of developments in the technology. Much of the basic physics that governs devices is now fairly well understood and with attention coming to focus on practical engineering developments a number of systems demonstrations are being made which illustrate well the capabilities of the technology. From these demonstrations it is clear that major opportunities exist for integrated optics devices, although the successful exploitation of these depends strongly on continued progress in engineering the devices for use in a broad range of non-research laboratory environments.
