The transformations of the transverse profiles of laser beams in a nonlinear Fabry-Perot interferometer based on lithium niobate crystals with a surface layer doped with a combination of photorefractive impurities (iron and copper ions) have been experimentally investigated. It is demonstrated that the distribution of transmitted beam intensity significantly changes for a few seconds at milliwatt beam powers.
