Abstract
The dispersion of surface acoustic waves and the colinear diffration of guided optical modes by the SAW have been studied in proton-exchanged Z-cut lithium noibate. The diffraction of guided modes by the Love waves was observed for the first time in PE:LiNbO3 optical waveguides. The possibility to measure the waveguide depths and guided mode effective refractive indices using acoustic waves is demonstrated.
