We demonstrate a new fixing method with SrxBa1−xNb2O6 crystals. This is done by inducing ferroelectric domains in the crystal in real time, by a screening mechanism. Images or their holograms can be recorded in small separate locations in the crystal. This crystal pixelization permits the recording of many pictures and their individual readout and erasure.
