Dynamics of grating formation in photovoltaic media


The Kukhtarev equations are solved taking into account the photovoltaic effect and different boundary conditions. In the case of open circuit, the voltage across the crystal is found to vary with a time scale similar to the photorefractive time constant. This effect explains the dynamic behavior observed experimentally.
