Abstract

Either α- or β-phase LiNbO3 guides of high quality were obtained by proton exchange of x- and z-cut substrates in benzoic acid vapor. The second-harmonic-generation efficiency of z-cut samples was found to be similar to that of the substrate for 0.01≤Δne≤0.1. x-cut samples show second-harmonic-generation efficiency that is good for Δne≤0.03 and negligible for Δne≥0.03. All cuts exhibit low optical losses (<0.35 dB cm−1) for Δne≤0.03 and Δne≥0.09 and a high optical damage threshold for Δne>0.03.
