Control of Etching of LiNbO3, by Implant Damage Profile Tailoring

  • P. J. Brannon (a1), C. I. H. Ashby (a1) and G. W. Arnold (a1)


Damage-profile tailoring using multi-energy ion implants can produce smooth side walls and deeper etched features with ion-bombardment-enhanced wet etching of LiNb03 than is possible with a single-energy implant. High ion fluences can produce buried microcracks which may contribute to propagation losses commonly observed in ion-implanted waveguides.
