Physics of the Photorefractive Effect in BaTiO3

Abstract

BaTiO3 was one of the first ferroelectric materials to be discovered, and also one of the first to be recognized as photorefractive [1]. The particular advantage of BaTiO3 for photorefractive applications is the very large value of its electrooptic tensor component r42, which in turn leads to large values of grating efficiency, beam coupling gain and four-wave mixing reflectivity. As an example, four-wave mixing reflectivities as large as 20 have been observed in BaTiO3 [2], with no electric field applied to the crystal. Such large reflectivities are particularly desirable in phase conjugate resonator applications, where to date BaTiO3 has been the material of choice.
