Abstract

We determined high absorption constants of crystals from photocurrent measurements within the interband absorption region (10–104 cm-1). The method has been demonstrated in the interband absorption regime near 530 nm in Sn2P2S6, a novel infrared sensitive photorefractive material, and in the interband absorption regime near 257 nm of near stoichiometric LiTaO3. Besides the verification of older measurements with our new technique, precise absorption data for Sn2P2S6 in the wavelength range 488–514 nm are presented.
