    Abstract. We report the operation of a two-wave mixing (TWM) photorefractive amplifier wherein fanning of both pump and signal beams has been simultaneously suppressed to an acceptable limit. This is achieved by the use of an input signal with mixed polarisation in conjuction with a self-bent...

    Abstract. During holographic recording in photorefractive crystals (BSO, BGO, and BTO) by an oscillating interference pattern we observe a strong dynamic deflection of the laser beams reflected from the crystal's surface. The theoretical treatment shows that this new effect is associated with a...
