Abstract

We report two-beam coupling experiments at 1.06-μm wavelength using photorefractive semi-insulating GaAs:Cr in the moving-grating recording mode. The steady-state gain coefficient Γ is measured as a function of fringe spacing Λ, fringe velocity υ, applied voltage V0, and incident beam ratio β. A maximum Γ as high as 6–7 cm−1 is observed for Λ ≃ 18 μm, υ ≃ 1 mm/sec, β > 103, and V0 ≃ 5 kV (interelectrode distance 5.8 mm). The agreement with the theory of two-beam coupling with moving fringes is discussed. In particular, a set of numerical values is obtained for some crystal parameters. Image amplification is demonstrated.
