Photorefractive effect in ferroelectric lead germanate Academic Article uri icon


  • The photorefractive effect is demonstrated for the first time in ferroelectric lead germanate crystal (Pb5Ge3O 11). An intensity coupling constant of Γ=2.3 cm-1 was measured at wavelength λ=514.5 nm in two-beam coupling experiments.
