Lithium niobate (LiNbO3) thin films were deposited on Al 2O3(001) substrates using metal-organic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD), with Li(dpm) and Nb(C2H5)5 as precursors. By optimizing the conditions of thin film deposition, the c-axis oriented and epitaxially grown LiNbO3 thin films with stoichiometric composition were deposited on an Al2O3(001) substrate. The refractive index of the stoichiometric LiNbO3 thin film was 2.24 at λ = 632.8 nm, which is close to that of bulk crystal.
