Abstract
In a photorefractive Bi12SiO20 crystal with high applied electric AC field of square-wave shape a fast two- wave coupling response (less than 1 second) and a slow hologram readout decay (minutes) was found for a wavelength of 633 nm. This can be explained by electron-hole transport with two trap-levels. An intensity dependence of the slower complementary grating was found. Illuminating with the readout wave without applied electric field leads to a very slow grating decay (many hours).
