-70 dB optical carrier suppression by two-beam coupling in photorefractive media
- 53 Downloads
Suppression of an optical carrier from an RF modulated laser beam of wavelength 532 nm is performed using two-beam coupling in photorefractive barium titanate. A theoretical analysis reveals that perfect suppression can be achieved at a specific modulation strength, which depends on the gain and intensity ratio between the two beams. The experiments achieve a maximum of -72.9±2.4 dB carrier suppression at the theoretically ideal modulation strength, and -61.0±2.4 dB for small modulation strengths.
