Abstract

Formulas for calculating the diffraction efficiency of gratings recorded in a photorefractive medium are given. The analysis uses coupled-wave theory for photorefractive hologram gratings and takes into account the photorefractive phase shift and fringe-bending effect. General solutions for diffracted (signal) and undiffracted (reference) waves are derived in a closed-form expression. By use of the derived formulas the diffraction efficiency for angle mismatch from the Bragg condition can easily be evaluated as compared with numerical-analysis methods. The diffraction efficiency is also quantified in terms of medium parameters and recording and reconstruction conditions.
