Paper Abstract

Twelve lithium niobate crystals doped with Ce, Co, Cr, Cu, Fe, Mn, Ni, Rh, Tb, Fe:Ce, Fe:Cr, and Fe:Mn have been grown and tested. The transmission spectra and dark conductivity of the crystals are presented. Holograms have been written in each of the crystals with wavelengths from 457 nm to 671 nm. The quality and stability of the holograms vary dramatically among the crystals. The properties of the holograms and a comparison of sensitivities between the crystals are discussed.
