Paper Abstract

The photorefractive grating formulation is a dynamic process which means that the interference light intensity of the two coherent beams inducing a phase grating through photo- induced refractive index variation and the phase grating changing the intensities of the two beam through beam- coupling take place at the same time. The analytic solution for such a grating formulation can be only obtained by simultaneously solving the material equations and the coupled wave equations. In this paper, using the Moharam's space-charge field function and the coupled wave equations, we first obtained the exact and approximate analytic solutions to the photorefractive grating with any light modulation depth and any constant light excitation efficiency. Here three step calculation idea has been used. These solutions help to understand the two-beam coupling effect and the interacted grating formulation process in physics more straightforward and in quantity more exactly.
