Parametric investigation of volume holographic gratings and optical phase conjugation are studied through coherent and incoherent beam couplings in barium titanate BaTiO3 and through the study of bistability in phase conjugate resonators. Experiments have been done on the effect of color centers in the formation of resonant systems and holographic grating formation. A summary of the important results appears in the final report.
