Abstract

We present the evolution equation of surface waves due to the two-photon photorefractive effect. It is shown theoretically that the surface waves can be supported by two-photon photorefractive media. The spatial frequency of photorefractive surface waves can be changed by an applied external electric field, which indicates a method for transforming the surface waves between high-frequency modes and low-frequency modes.
