Paper Abstract

By using split-step beam propagation method, self-pumped contra-directional two-beam coupling is simulated in a photorefractive medium for arbitrary shaped beams. The simulation shows a positive influence of the photovoltaic effect on the two-beam coupling efficiency, in agreement with published experimental observations.
