Hydrogen in the form of OH- ions can be incorporated into LiNbO3 single crystals during the growth process. The infrared absorption band due to the OH- defects has been measured at room temperature and a considerable change of the band shape has been observed depending on the crystal composition. The structure of the band found in nearly stoichiometric crystals indicates three slightly different proton sites which can be explained on the basis of the LiNbO3 crystal structure.
