Abstract

The UV photorefractivity of Li Nb O 3 : Hf was investigated by beam distortion and two-wave coupling experiments. A sharp decrease of beam distortion was found between Hf concentrations of 2 and 2.5 mol. % , indicating a significant increase of photoconductivity there. The energy-transfer direction of the two-wave coupling and the effect of chemical reduction on the UV photorefractivity reveal that electrons are the carriers responsible for the UV photorefraction. Moreover, dissimilar with Li Nb O 3 highly doped with Mg, Zn, and In, the grating recorded in Li Nb O 3 : Hf was found to be nearly stable in the dark but sensitive to red light, which can be attributed to the special location of Fe ions in the crystal lattice.
