Two-wave mixing (TWM) in transmission geometry of photorefractive (PR) crystals of 23 symmetry such as BSO, BGO is investigated by solving a set of coupled wave equations and taking their optical activity as one of the effective parameter. Coupled wave equations are solved numerically by fourth order Runge-kutta method and results are presented in graphical form. The effects of various parameters such as crystal thickness, optical activity, coupling coefficient, absorption, and input polarization angle of pump beam has been studied on the input beam polarization components. It has been observed that by varying the behaviour of pump beam polarization, signal beam can be modified. This can be used in various applications such as spatial light modulation and optical information processing, etc. © 2010 Published by Elsevier GmbH.
