Two-color holographic recording was performed in near-stoichiometric LiNbO3 crystals doped with 50-ppm Mn, where the crystals were thermally annealed in different oxidation/reduction atmospheres. Two-color recording properties including sensitivity, dynamic range, activity energy, and dark decay time were measured and compared, and the results were explained reasonably by measuring some characteristic material parameters.
