Several classes of materials exhibit photorefractive properties. Among the insulating materials, BaTiO 3, with a nonlinear coefficient of n 3 r eff = pmV −1, is the most photorefractive material. InP, GaAs, and CdTe are three important photorefractive semiconductors. Materials of these two classes are discussed in Günter and Huignard. This book is a collection of many of the most important recent developments in photorefractive effects and materials. The introductory chapter, which provides the necessary tools for understanding a wide variety of photorefractive phenomena, is followed by seven contributed chapters that offer views of the state-of-the-art in several different. Photorefractive Materials and Their Applications 2: Materials is the second of three volumes within the Springer Series in Optical Sciences. The book gives a comprehensive review of the most important photorefractive materials and discusses the physical properties of organic and inorganic crystals as well as poled : Hardcover. This book provides comprehensive, state-of-the art coverage of photorefractive organic compounds, a class of material with the ability to change their index of refraction upon illumination. The change is both dynamic and reversible. Dynamic because no external processing is required for the index.
History. Although the physics behind the photorefractive effect were known for quite a while, the effect was first observed in in LiNbO 3. For more than thirty years, the effect was observed and studied exclusively in inorganic materials, until , when a nonlinear organic crystal 2-(cyclooctylamino)nitropyridine (COANP) doped with 7,7,8,8-tetracyanoquinodimethane exhibited the. A comprehensive and up-to-date reference on holographic recording Photorefractive Materials for Dynamic Optical Recording offers a comprehensive overview of the physics, technology, and characterization of photorefractive materials that are used for optical recording. Book Details Book Quality: Publisher Quality ISBN The book provides an analysis of the fundamental properties of the materials and explores the dynamic recording of a spatial electric charge distribution and the associated spatial electric ﬁeld distribution. The text also includes information on the characterization of photorefractive materials using holographic and nonholographic optical. Photorefractive Materials presents an overview of the basic features and properties of photorefractive materials, covering a wide array of related topics. It provides a coherent approach suitable for introductory and advanced students seeking to learn or review the fundamentals, as well as senior researchers who need a reference while investigating more specialized areas.
Photorefractive materials are interesting because they can be used as self-developing and refreshable holographic recording medium. Photorefractive organic materials are now mature for applications and we have developed a large holographic 3D display that can . Get this from a library! Photorefractive optics: materials, properties, and applications. [Shizhuo Yin; Francis T S Yu;] -- "This text covers the fundamental aspects and the recent advances of photorefractive optics. There is a market potential for developing photorefractive (PR) optic devices for the needs of. Materials demonstrating a photorefractive effect are principal candidates for numerous applications, including high-density optical data storage, optical image processing, phase conjugated mirrors.
