Abstract

Photorefractive recording of holograms in Bi12SiO20, exhibiting very long lifetimes (as great as 3600 s) at near-infrared wavelengths, is reported. This behavior is observed simultaneously with the principal dynamic recording in the diffusion regime, and no applied electric field is necessary for its observation. The dependence of these long-lived holograms on various recording parameters is studied experimentally. Image-processing operations such as image addition and subtraction are performed by simultaneous reconstruction of the fast and the slow multiplexed holograms.
