Lithium niobate is a well-known electrooptic crystal but its application is limited by the photorefractive effect. Magnesium doping was reported to reduce the value of the photorefraction /1-5/. It was shown that for mg concentrations higher than some threshold the decrease of the photorefraction by a factor of 102 as compared to the pure LiNbO3 is due to the corresponding increase of the photoconductivity /2,3/. Similarly in LiNb03:Mg:Fe2 with Fe concentration up to 0.03 wt% the photorefraction is reduced by a factor 102 as compared to LiNb03:Fe /5/.
