A 90.DEG.-domain structure was fabricated using electrical poling in ferroelectric birefringent KNbO3 crystal. The refraction and reflection characteristics of the light at the boundary of the 90.DEG.-domain structure were investigated, and the novel behavior of total refraction (no reflection) has been found for the P-polarized light throughout the entire range of incident angle (0.LEQ..THETA..LEQ.90.DEG.). Strong refraction of the light was observed after it exited from the crystal output surface at the incidence parallel to the domain boundary. These behaviors were explained analytically.
