In this research, two-wave coupling in photorefractive lithium niobate crystal has been used to do imaging enhancement of digital holography (DH) system. The image bearing beam of in-line DH system has been incident and interfered with a reference beam that was emerged from the same laser on a LiNbO3 crystal. With certain angles between both beams, the energy of the reference beam was transferred to the image bearing beam then resulted the enhancement of the reconstructed image of the DH system. By using the suitable intensity of laser beam with a right PR crystal, the image from an in-line DH imaging system would be improved.
In this paper, optical phase conjugate beam with the using of different resonator configurations has been investigate. Two types of SPPC resonators were selected to use, the first one is linear resonators formed by crystal surface and the other one is linear resonators formed by single mirror and a photorefractive crystal. In our experiment, cerium doped barium titanate crystal (BaTiO3 : Ce) and He-Ne laser with wavelength of 632.8 nm have been used. From the results of both cases, the angle of the incident beams is optimum at 37.95° respect to the normal line of the surface that parallel to the c-axis of the crystal. The generating time of OPC beam are 150 seconds and 330 seconds for the first and second type resonators, respectively. The reflection ratios are equal to 8.75% and 5% for the first and second type resonators, respectively (the first type resonators could provide better reflection ratio).
