Abstract

It is shown experimentally and theoretically that a partial domain reversal in ferroelectric lithium niobate crystals containing a previously imprinted photorefractive space-charge grating results in a highly unusual change of the angular Bragg selectivity. This carries important in situ information about domain structures, including the quality of periodically poled samples.
