Abstract

We report the observation, first to our knowledge, of optical waveguiding found beneath trenches etched in congruent lithium niobate using the recently reported etching during the indiffusion of Ti process. Observations of multi-mode and single-mode guiding at visible wavelengths and preliminary measurements of waveguide insertion losses are presented.
