Abstract

The photorefractive effect in a nominally undoped 0.91Pb(Zn1/3Nb2/3)O3–0.09PbTiO3 single crystal is measured. We report what is, to our knowledge, the first observation of the photorefractive effect in Pb-based relaxor ferroelectric crystals. The crystal is grown by the flux solution method. Then it is cut into a 2mm× 4mm ×8mm piece and electrically poled along the [111] direction. The coupling constant of the two-wave mixing is 17cm-1, and the normalized time constant under 1-W/cm2 illumination is 12 s at a wavelength of 476 nm. The effective trap density is calculated as 5×1016cm-3 from the Debye screening length under the assumption of Kukhtarev’s band-transport model. The dominant carrier is identified to be holes from the direction of two-wave mixing energy transfer.
