Paper Abstract

The exponential gain of two-beam coupling in InP:Fe crystals under dc fields is a function of the pump beam intensity at a given temperature. We propose two methods in order to extend the sample volume working under optimum conditions. The first method is based on a negative thermal gradient and the second uses an auxiliary incoherent beam. Theoretical simulations predict an integrated gain of 15cm-1 and 10cm-1 respectively (for λ=1.06pm, λ=5μm and 0° =10kV/cm) in thick crystals (L=5mm) . Preliminary experimental results confirm that high gain performances can be achieved by using these methods.
