Self-pumping in cerium-doped strontium barium niobate has been observed with phase-conjugate reflectivities near 6% and a formation time of 8 sec for a 200-mW/cm2 beam at 442 nm. The time response for asymmetrical self-defocusing was also measured, and the observed transmissions through the crystal at normal incidence were limited to about 1.5% of the incident radiation.

  20. We determined that the sign of the electro-optic coefficient, r33, is positive by the use of a calibrated compensator. This fact, coupled with the observation that extraordinary light fans toward the electrode held positive during poling, gives a negative sign for the photorefractive charge carriers.
