Abstract

Bismuth tellurite (Bi2TeO5) is a new nonlinear optical material which has only recently been prepared in single crystal form suitable for optical investigations. The material became interesting with the discovery of its photorefractive properties. A unique feature of Bi2TeO5 is the development of a long-lived spontaneous photorefractive signal component during the four-wave mixing write process that lasts for years. The photorefractive and photochromic properties of the material are reviewed in this paper.
