Recent advances in LiNbO3 integrated optics
Over the past several years, LiNbO3 based integrated optics devices have moved from the device designer's laboratory into the more nearly real world of systems experiments. A few types of devices have even become commercially available in small quantities. Other articles in this issue will discuss the place of LiNbO3 in experimental communication, sensing and computing systems, and the emergence of LiNbO3 manufacturing and foundry services. This article discusses some of the theoretical and practical advances that are making LiNbO3 a viable material.
