Waveguides and waveguide resonators are very useful devices for nonlinear interactions. Indeed, they permit having a very high density of energy and quite long interaction lengths, and lead to devices with high conversion efficiency for low pumping power [1, 2] . In the visible and the near infrared, the most convenient material for nonlinear effects is Lithium Niobate in which we are able to realize good waveguides by Titanium Indiffusion (TI). In this paper we shall discuss the new waveguide fabrication process that we developped in Nice : Titanium Indiffusion Proton Exchange (TIPE), and we show by the example of Second Harmonic Generation (SHG) the new possibilities of these waveguides which enables us to design very interesting parametric devices.
