We report on surface hexagonally poled lithium niobate for two-dimensional non-linear interactions in optical waveguide structures. A method for surface inversion of ferroelectric domains has been applied for the fabrication of a hexagonal two-dimensional periodic domain structure with a period of 7.6 μm on an annealed proton exchanged lithium niobate waveguide. This periodic pattern is suitable for quasi-phase-matched second harmonic generation at the fundamental wavelength of 1.06 μm by means of the first order (G 10 ) reciprocal lattice vector.
