Abstract

We investigate UV photorefraction in Mg-doped LiNbO3 crystals. Strong UV photorefraction is achieved in highly Mg-doped LiNbO3 crystals with high two-wave mixing gain, fast response, and low noise. It is also demonstrated experimentally that so-called damage-resistant dopants such as Mg are damage resistant only in the visible and that they will enhance photorefraction in the UV.

Absorption spectra for nominally pure and Mg-doped LiNbO3 crystals. From left to right, the curves correspond to LiNbO3:Mg (Mg, 9 mol.%), LiNbO3:Mg (Mg, 5 mol.%), LiNbO3:Mg (Mg, 3 mol.%), and nominally pure LiNbO3. Reflection losses were taken into account, but light scattering was not.
