We report on a photonic crystal slab patterned on a 690 nm thick LiNbO3 thin film bonded to SiO2 on lithium niobate substrate. The transmission spectrum is measured and a broad and clear photonic bandgap ranging from 1335 to 1535 nm with a maximum extinction ratio of more than 20 dB is observed. The bandgap is simulated by plane wave expansion and 3D finite-difference time-domain methods. Such a deep and broad bandgap structure can be used to form high-performance photonic devices and circuits on the platform of lithium niobate-on-insulator.
