Abstract

The physics of the photorefractive effect and the unique nonlinear optical properties of photorefractive crystals are described. A survey of the optical applications of the photorefractive effect follows. We include the use of photorefractive crystals as holographic storage elements, optical image amplifiers, phase conjugate mirrors, correction elements for intracavity laser distortions, phase conjugate windows for field transmission through inhomogeneous media, and coherent image processors.
