The characteristics of a new high-gain photorefractive polymer composite
with a PNP chromophore are investigated. Competition between beam fanning
and two-wave coupling (TWC) is predicted and verified experimentally. The
intensity dependence of TWC gain is studied. Higher diffraction order and
forward phase conjugation in a TWC geometry are observed and explained.
