Abstract : The photo-induced redistribution of charge has been characterized in Bi12GEO20 and Bi12Sio20 crystals using electron spin resonance, thermally stimulated luminescence, and optical absorption techniques. Our results suggest that Fe3+ ions play an important role in the photorefractive effect in these materials. Keywords: Bismuth compounds, Silicon compounds, Germanium compounds.
