Abstract

Coupling of the acousto-optic effect and the photorefractive effect in a magnesium-doped lithium niobate crystal was studied by a holographic recording technique. The process of self-interference that is due to the coupling of these two effects was observed. Our results demonstrate that beam splitting and deflection, holographic recording, and self-interference can occur simultaneously in one crystal.
