Lithium niobate is a ferroelectric material suitable for a variety of applications. Its versatility
is made possible by the excellent electro-optic, nonlinear, and piezoelectric properties of the
intrinsic material. It is one of the most thoroughly characterized electro-optic materials, and
crystal growing techniques consistently produce large crystals of high perfection.
Applications that utilize the large electro-optic coefficients of lithium niobate are optical
modulation and Q-switching of infrared wavelengths. Because the crystal is
nonhygroscopic and has a low half-wave voltage
