Abstract

The signal-to-noise ratio of the output of an adaptive holographic interferometer (AHI) based on a Bi12TiO20 crystal is investigated. We show experimentally that the sensitivity of an AHI using the non-Bragg orders of diffraction in a thin photorefractive material is more than an order of magnitude greater than that of an AHI employing two-wave mixing in photorefractive volume holograms.
