Paper Abstract

In this paper, effect of polarization of light on photorefractive grating formulation with any light modulation in birefringent photorefractive material is studied in detail. The diffraction efficiency with various modulations and different polarization mode is calculated. Theoretical analytic results are presented. It is shown that both the ratio of the initial intensity and the incident angle of the writing waves are selective when the polarization of mode of the readout wave and that of diffracted wave are different. But these two recording conditions are not selective for the isotropic diffraction. On the other hand, it is also found that the length of the grating is selective for anisotropic diffraction.
