Impact of the sublinear photoconductivity law on the interpretation of holographic results in BaTiO3

Abstract

Thick holographic refractive index gratings are written in nominally pure and in iron doped BaTiO3 crystals. The phase shift between refractive index grating and light pattern is studied as a function of an externally applied electric field by a direct phase shift measuring technique. The choice of the method is suggested by a theoretical analysis which allows for the effect of a nonlinear relation between photoconductivity and light intensity on the holographic writing process.
