Holographic gratings in photorefractive crystals that are based on charge redistribution inevitably decay as a result of ionic and electronic conduction. Under certain and restricted conditions these decay times can be acceptably long. Relevant decay rates and transient hologram field expressions are derived with special reference to LiNbO3. Some experimental data are presented.
