The tantalum composition (x) in LiNb1-xTaxO3 solid-solution films grown on LiNbO3 by liquid-phase epitaxy can be precisely controlled by changing the growth temperature. The composition of the film was found to be nearly stoichiometric (Li/(Nb + Ta) = 1) based on electron probe microanalysis and X-ray rocking curve analysis. The second-harmonic generation phase-matching wavelength becomes longer by substituting Ta for Nb in LiNbO3.
