  2. Electro-Optic Photonic Integrated Circuits in Thin Lithium Niobate


    Lithium niobate (LiNbO3) has been a widely used electro-optic (EO) material since the 1970rsquo;s. Large electro-optic (EO) coefficients and lower third-order nonlinearity compared to other III-V materials (e.g., InP, Si) make LiNbO3 an ideal candidate for active photonic devices. Although indium phosphide (InP) and silicon (Si) -based foundries are already established, a LiNbO3-based foundry is s ...
