    The photorefractive coupling gain is limited in InP:Fe even if there is no direct hole-electron competition. One has to take into account the excited state of Fe2+ (5T2) with its strong thermal emission(1/βth[bar_over_tilde:_approx._equal_to]100 ns). This leads to an indirect hole-electron...

    We report photorefractive two beam coupling gain coefficients as high as Γ=19 cm-1 and net gains of Γ-α=14 cm-1 in InP:Fe at around 970 nm. This enhancement was achieved by combining band-edge resonant nonlinearities with a second resonant enhancement derived from the bipolar...
