We describe a new method for photorefractive response time measurement in fast photorefractive crystals based on continuous phase modulation in two-wave mixing. We report experimental results for undoped semi-insulating GaAs that are in good agreement with theory. Values obtained for the response time and photoelectron generation quantum efficiency are consistent with previously published data.
