Abstract

The structure and dynamics of the four-wave mixing transmission grating in a photorefractive crystal were investigated. The steady-state grating’s amplitude distribution looks like a motionless soliton. When the value of coupling strength is more than 2, there are three solutions for the steady-state grating: two stable and one unstable. The dynamics of all these gratings are described by the sine-Gordon equation. The four-wave mixing grating’s structure and location in space are determined by the input beams’ ratio, phase difference, or both.
