Abstract The needs of modern day photonics stimulate continual research into engineering new platforms. This thesis focuses on the prominent photonic platform-lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI). Chapter 1 introduces the history of photonics, photonic applications, platform requirements. Moreover, popular photonic platforms are introduced and compared, followed by a review of LNOI photonics. Chapter 2 provides a brief theoretical background to waveguide theory, microring resonators, electro-optic effect and nanofabrication. In chapter 3, published work on ultra low loss LNOI waveguides is presented. Chapter 4 and 5 discuss published edge coupling and vertical coupling LNOI devices for efficient fibre-chip coupling. The fourth publication is presented in chapter 6 where the initial steps towards tunable integrated spectral filtering are investigated. This thesis aims to propose solutions to the engineering challenges faced by LNOI as an emerging platform, from the initial nanostructuring requirements needed for low loss waveguides and efficient coupling schemes, to early nonlinear and electro-optic devices.
