Abstract

Two optical beams can couple in a photorefractive crystal without using the electro-optic effect. Beam coupling is due to a spatially modulated absorption caused by the rearrangement of trapped charges. We use these gratings to determine the effective photorefractive trap density for several barium titanate crystals.
