Abstract: Lithium niobate (LN) crystal has attracted great attention due to its application in rewritable holographic recording. In spite of demonstrating great progress, LN crystals have suffered from intrinsic defects that exist due to its congruent composition (CLN). Top seeded solution growth (TSSG) method was used to grow un-doped and doped LN crystals with stoichiometric composition (SLN). Various techniques were utilized to analyze the band edge, OH-1 vibration spectra and raman modes of the crystal samples. X a?? Cut and Z a?? Cut doped SLN crystal samples were inspected for beam fanning and optical damage due to photorefractive effect. The effect of beam fanning on holographic recording was simulated using kukhtarev equations. High-speed and high-density one-color holographic recording was performed in doped SLN crystal samples with signal-carrying light beams. Two-color nonvolatile holographic recording was also realized at IR recording wavelength.
