Abstract

A number of Li-deficient MgO-doped LiNbO3 (LN) crystals with different Li2O contents ranging from 43.4 mol. % to 44.5 mol. % were prepared by carrying out the Li-poor vapor transport equilibration treatment on 5 mol. % (in growth melt) MgO-doped LN crystals. Unclamped electro-optic (EO) coefficients γ13 and γ33 of these crystals were measured by Mach-Zehnder interferometry. The results show that γ1333) increases linearly by ∼14% (11%) as the Li2O content decreases from 44.5 mol. % of the as-grown state to 43.4 mol. % of the Li-deficient state. This feature is desired for the EO application of the Li-deficient MgO:LN crystal.
