Abstract

Congruently grown lithium tantalate crystals containing ferroelectric domain structures have been illuminated with ultraviolet light along the crystallographic c axis with simultaneous application of an external electric field. This gives rise to a star-shaped light diffraction pattern in the transmitted beam. The characteristics of this phenomenon are investigated and compared with those observed in lithium niobate crystals.
