We present studies of the photorefractive effect in nonphotorefractive orientations of liquid-encapsulated Czochralski-grown GaAs crystals. Picosecond diffraction experiments conducted in different samples show that a forbidden photorefractive signal correlates well with dislocation density, which points out that the effect arises from strain fields and growth defects.
