Dopants may influence light-induced refractive index changes - so-called photo-refractive or optical damage effects - in LiNbO3 by different means. In this contribution we investigate consequences of transition metal ions acting as filled and empty traps, of Ti4+ centers and protons which are necessary for the formation of waveguiding layers and of Mg2+ ions reducing optical damage effects.
