Abstract

The characteristics of four-wave mixing signals were studied in Eu3+-doped glasses. When the Eu3+ ions were resonantly excited, two types of laser-induced grating were formed: a transient population grating associated with the excited Eu3+ ions and a holographic grating, which was permanent at room temperature but could be erased either thermally or optically.
