About Niobates

Rubidium Niobate

Niobates are salts containing an anionic grouping of niobium and oxygen. One of the most common niobates is lithium niobate, a compound of niobium, lithium, and oxygen. Single crystals of this compound are used in the production of optical waveguides, optical modulators, and various other linear and non-linear optical applications.
