Abstract

A series of ZrO 2 -doped Ru : Fe : LiNbO 3 crystals with various Li composition were grown by conventional Czochralski technique. The OH absorption spectra were measured, and the Lorentzian fitting was employed to analyze the defect structures. The photorefractive properties in these crystals were investigated as a function of Li/Nb ratios. The recording sensitivity of Li-enriched Zr : Ru : Fe : liNbO 3 crystal was 1.70 cm / J , and the diffraction efficiency was as high as 44.3%, while this crystal could withstand a laser intensity of 3.4 × 10 4 W / cm 2 at 476 nm irradiation. Experimental results definitely showed that Zr : Ru : Fe : LiNbO 3 crystals were promising blue photorefraction materials for holographic volume storage.
