Abstract

Numerous applications in integrated optics, especially those related to multiwavelength telecommunications, require dichroic reflectors for use as narrowband or broadband wavelength-selective filters. Bragg mirrors are excellent candidates for this purpose, and we describe a method of fabricating Bragg grating reflectors in Ti-indiffused Lithium Niobate single-mode waveguides based on holographic masking in association with proton exchange. The holographic setup is employed to record a photolithographic mask directly on the substrate, enabling the inscription of waveguides with both periodic and aperiodic distributed parameters.
