The photorefractive effect was observed in He-ion-implanted semi-insulating GaN film in UV spectral region. The photorefractive grating is induced by the electroabsorption effect near the band-edge. Two beam coupling experiments were performed at a wavelength of 363.8 nm. The experimental results indicate that absorption grating mainly contributes to the beam coupling effect.
