Abstract

Bismuth tellurite - Bi2TeO5 is a new photorefractive material recently available for optical memory investigations. Analogue volume holograms of a two-dimensional test pattern were recorded in undoped Bi 2TeO5 crystals by using a cw Nd:YAG laser at 532 nm. The quality, dark decay and durability during permanent reading of the image were studied and compared to those of the reference LiNbO3:Fe crystals. The holograms in the two crystals were of comparable quality, and they were less vulnerable for strong laser exposure in Bi2TeO5 than in the LiNbO3:Fe crystals by a factor of 50.
