Paper Abstract

The photorefractive(PR) materials offer the real-time, erasable, high capacity, and parallel accessible capabilities, that warrant applications to variety of photonics devices. In this paper, we reviewed some of the material processing aspects and their optical properties. The thermal influence on the PR materials, dynamics of PR holographic process as well as applications of PR fiber holograms are discussed. The major obstacle and fundamental limitations of the PR materials that prevent the wide-spread applications are also described.
