Abstract
We demonstrate that the fanning light emerging from an optically activ e fiberlike bismuth titanium oxide (Bi12TiO20) crystal is linearly pol arized either parallel to the applied electric-field Vector or perpend icular to it, independently of the external ac electric field, the cry stal length, and the pump beam polarization state. We show also that a photorefractive surface wave can be generated at the opposite crystal sides, depending on the pump beam polarization. (C) 1996 Optical Soci ety of America
