Abstract
Thermooptic coefficients of the effective refractive index in integrated optical strip waveguides in LiNbO3 have been measured with high accuracy by Mach-Zehnder and Fabry-Perot interferometer techniques. Titanium indiffused and annealed proton exchanged (APE) strip waveguides were found to have the same value as it is known for the substrate material. Multimode proton exchanged (PE) strip waveguides specially designed for maximum field overlap to the APE guides show a reduction of the thermooptic coefficient to one-fifth with negative sign. Phase shift dependent on temperature was examined in APE strip waveguides containing such a strip-shaped multimode PE segment.
