About this book


Photorefractive Materials and Their Applications 1 - Basic Effects is the first of three volumes within the Springer Series in Optical Sciences.

The book gives a comprehensive treatment of photorefractive effects in crystals and reviews our present understanding of the fundamental origins of the effect in a variety of materials from ferroelectrics to compound semiconductors, organic crystals, and polymers. Researchers in the field and graduate students of solid-state physics and engineering will gain a thorough understanding of the photorefractive effect and find a rich reference source.

The other two volumes are:

Photorefractive Materials and Their Applications 2 - Materials

Photorefractive Materials and Their Applications 3 - Applications


Dynamic Holography Gunter Günter Photorefractive Effects electro-optics nonlinear optics semiconductor
