Abstract
The Sr1-xBaxNb2O6 (SBN) and Ba2-xSrxK1-yNayNb5O15 (BSKNN) tungsten bronze solid-solution systems are shown to be promising photo-refractive materials. Because of the versatility of the bronze structure, both the response time and spectral response can be controlled by altering the type of dopant and its crystallographic site preference. This paper reviews the current status of the tungsten bronze crystals SBN and BSKNN for photorefractive applications in terms of their growth, electro-optic character, and the role of cerium dopants. Ferroelectric morphotropic phase boundary (MPB) bronze materials are also discussed as potentially important for future development.
