Researchers from the National University of Singapore (NUS), Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST), Agency for Science, Technology and Research (A*STAR), and Nanyang Technological University (NTU) recently summarized advances in lithium niobate (LN) photonics in detail. The content of this review, published in Advanced Photonics, includes the integrated LN photonics devices which have appeared in recent years, as well as selected bulk LN based devices and related processing technologies. In this way, the research community can reach a better, comprehensive understanding of the technology evolution of LN photonics.
