Photorefractive Materials: Fundamental Concepts, Holographic Recording, and Materials Characterization.


Photorefractive materials; fundamental concepts, holographic recording, and materials characterization.

Frejlich, Jaime.

Wiley-IEEE Press


309 pages




Primarily for graduate students, but also undergraduates who have had some exposure to the area, Frejlich (physics, U. Estadual de Campinas, Brazil) presents an overview of the basic features and properties of photo-refractive materials. He covers the basic properties of the electro-optical effect and photo-conductivity, the buildup of a space-charge electric field and the associated volume hologram, using holographic and other optical techniques to characterize photo-refractives and to measure some of their fundamental parameters, and applications to measuring vibrations and deformations and fabricating diffraction fixed holographic optical components.
