Funding Information:
In addition, the speed of the photorefractive effect is influenced by the possibility that mobile holes can become trapped in the NLO sites during transport. The overall picture that emerges4 provides an important step toward rational design of these materials, in which the actual trap concentrations are controlled by composition and irradiation history.
