Abstract

The temporal dynamics of photorefractive and absorptive gains during two-wave mixing in Stark geometry photorefractive quantum wells are investigated using moving gratings to break the symmetry of the photorefractive diodes to achieve nonreciprocal energy transfer between two coherent laser beams.
