Abstract

Double gratings form in anisotropic photorefractive crystals when two plane waves intersecting inside the crystal have both extraordinary and ordinary wave components. The effect can be observed by reading out the two gratings with extraordinary or ordinary light. Experiments confirm the theoretical predictions. The relevance of these results in using photorefractive crystals for holographic storage is discussed.
