Abstract

We report the results of an experimental and theoretical study of electron–hole competition in CdTe:Ge photorefractive crystal with an incoherent auxiliary illumination and alternating low-frequency field. Resonant two-wave mixing (TWM) gain enhancement is studied that has been found depending on the wavelength and intensity of the incoherent illumination. We show that a low-frequency ac field can be used for an effective TWM gain enhancement under conditions appropriate to the electron–hole resonance. A time oscillation of the photorefractive gain concerned with the ac field is studied experimentally, and self-generation of time subharmonics is reported.
