  • The storage application of the light-climbing effect in a LiNbO(3):Fe crystal has been studied experimentally. A new type of photorefractive storage in LiNbO(3):Fe crystals, in which one could write the multipage simultaneously and at a later time read out the multistored pages, using only one readout beam simultaneously, has been demonstrated successfully. Furthermore the signal-to-noise ratio of the output images was high because the climbing lights suppressed the fanning noise scattering lights.
