The doping of LiNbO(3)with V2+, V3+, V(4+)and V(5+)as well as Mo3+, Mo4+, Mo(5+)and Mo(6+)ions is of interest in enhancing its photorefractive properties. In this paper, possible incorporation mechanisms for these ions in LiNbO(3)are modelled, using a new set of interaction potentials fitted to the oxides VO, V2O3, VO2, V(2)O(5)and to LiMoO2, Li2MoO3, LiMoO3, Li2MoO4.
