Abstract

The Faraday photorefractive effect is demonstrated by combining photorefractive two-beam coupling with Faraday rotation in Cd1–xMnxTe, a diluted magnetic semiconductor. Two-wave mixing is monitored as a function of incident-beam polarization and magnetic-field strength with the grating vector parallel to a 〈111〉 axis. The photorefractive gain is an oscillatory function of the magnetic field. The magnetic field controls the direction and magnitude of photorefractive energy transfer by rotating the polarization inside the crystal.
