Abstract
The experimental investigation of the diffusion mechanism of photorefractive recording in BSO and BTO crystals at 633 nm under the conditions of sample pre-illumination by incoherent yellow-green light has been carried out. The nonmonotonic time behavior of diffraction efficiency manifesting itself as a local minimum has been found. Nothing of the kind is observed without preliminary illumination. The obtained results support the model in which the nonmonotonic evolution of a recorded grating is associated with the conditions of non-steady state and nonlinear photoconductivity in preexposed samples.
