Photoinduced Optical and Electrical High-Voltage Pulsations and Pattern Formation in Photorefractive CrystalsJournal of Nonlinear Optical Physics & Materials
AbstractWe review our results on conversion of CW laser Ar-ion beam power into pulsating multi-channel outputs: optical, electric and piezoelectric with simultaneous dynamic pattern formation. We show, that electrical pulsations generate high-voltage signals that may be used as a driving voltage for the conventional electro-optical modulator. We have also demonstrated the possibility of synchronization of two optical pulsators, through regulated optical coupling in a photorefractive LiNbO3 crystal. Spatial distribution of scattered light is self-organized in different patterns (hexagonal and cross-type).
