Abstract

We have realized an electric field controlled Bragg diffraction optical beam splitter based on a photorefractive Bragg diffraction grating. In our experiments, the splitter was produced by wave coupling (532.0nm) with a potassium lithium tantalate niobate single crystal. In the process of splitting, the incident beam could be split into multioutput beams by the splitter. The influence of an externally applied electric field was studied, and the results show that the intensity of the Bragg diffraction could be controlled by the electric field. The polarization properties of the splitter are discussed.
