Abstract

A high quality fixed holographic grating was recorded in a photorefractive Li Nb O 3 :Fe crystal at about 100 ° C in a homemade temperature-controlled vacuum chamber. The recording was carried out using self-stabilization techniques with λ = 532 nm beams guided onto the crystal by polarization maintaining fibers. The diffraction efficiency of the fixed grating was η = 0.44 when measured in the recording setup using the same λ = 532 nm recording beams. A compatible η was measured with λ = 633 nm in an auxiliary setup, and a 1 mrad angular Bragg selectivity at FWMH was estimated, thus demonstrating the uniformity and good quality of the fixed grating.
