Abstract

We experimentally investigate the formation of reconfigurable three-dimensional (3D) nonlinear photonic lattices in an externally biased cerium doped strontium barium niobate photorefractive crystal by a spatial light modulator-assisted versatile simplified single step optical induction approach. The analysis of the generated 3D nonlinear photonic lattices by plane wave guiding, momentum space spectroscopy, and far field diffraction pattern imaging is presented, which points to the embedded potential of these 3D structures as reconfigurable platform to investigate advanced nonlinear light-matter interaction in periodic structures.
