Abstract

We present a method based on incremental holographic multiplexing to create a refractive index ratchet distribution into a photorefractive crystal as an example for the generation principle of such complex multiperiodic lattices. The implemented technique follows a finite optical series expansion of the desired index modulation. To analyze the induced lattice, we determine the phase retardation of a probe beam at the back face of the crystal by digital holography analysis. Our result depicts a first example to optically explore the fascinating phenomena of ratchet resembling systems.
