Abstract

The miniaturization of electro-optically addressable photonic arrays was investigated. It was observed that the miniaturization was done in a photorefractive paraelectric bulk crystal by driving self-trapping. It was also observed that the spatially resolved electric field manifests a localized voltage dependent region. It was found that the quasi-uniform field leads to screening-like self-trapped waves at low voltages.
