Abstract

A series of vanadium-doped lithium niobate (LN:V) crystals has been grown and their photorefractive properties were investigated. For 0.1   mol. % V-doped LiNbO 3 , a fast photorefractive response of 160 ms was obtained with a 351 nm laser and a total light intensity of 583 mW / cm 2 . The measurements of the x-ray photoelectron spectrum and electron paramagnetic resonance show that V 3 + , V 4 + , and V 5 + ions exist in these LN:V crystals. V 3 + and V 4 + ions correspond to the 420 and 475 nm absorption peaks, respectively. The fast photorefractive response and high sensitivity indicate that LN:V is a suitable candidate for UV photorefractive applications.
