Anisotropic self-diffraction in photorefractive Bi12SiO20 crystals is applied to the investigation of dynamic holographic recording through the diffusion process. Specific attention is paid to optimization of experimental parameters for real-time holographic interferometry. The resultant interferometer is applied to obtain both time-average and double-exposure interferograms of vibrating and displaced structures.
