Ion beam manipulation of the photorefractive properties of SBN planar waveguides

By E.E. Robertson, R.W. Eason, M. Kaczmarek, P.J. Chandler and X. Huang


Photo refractive planar waveguides have been fabricated in cerium doped Strontium Barium Niobate (Sr(x)Ba(1-x)Nb2O6 : SBN) single crystals by ion beam implantation. The losses measured were as low as 0.1 dB /cm and 7.0 dB /cm for the TM and TE modes respectively. Subsequent two beam coupling experiments performed on the waveguides showed that, unlike BaTiO3 and KNbO3 waveguides formed by ion beam implantation, the two-beam coupling gain direction did not reverse. The response time had also been reduced by two orders of magnitude
