We report what we believe to be the first stand-alone integrated electro-optic lens and scanner fabricated on a single crystal of <i>Z</i>-cut LiTaO<sub>3</sub>. The independently controlled lens and scanner components consist of lithographically defined domain-inverted regions extending through the thickness of the crystal. A lens power of 0.233 cm<sup>−1</sup> kV<sup>−1</sup> and a deflection angle of 12.68 mrad kV<sup>−1</sup> were observed at the output of the device.
