The steady-state light-induced absorption and the temporal relaxation behavior under illumination of cw ultraviolet light in Mn-doped near-stoichiometric LiNbO3 with different crystal compositions are investigated. The ultraviolet-light-induced absorption has been assigned to small polarons NbLi4+ by measuring the absorption spectra at room temperature. The dependences of relaxation behaviors (time constant and stretching factor) of light-induced absorption on various illumination conditions (intensity, polarization) and temperature are presented, which are very different from those observed in Fe-doped LiNbO3 illuminated with highly intense light pulse, though the temporal relaxation follows the same stretched-exponential decay behavior in both cases. The results are explained reasonably by using the model of distance-dependent electron transition probabilities between localized deep traps and small polarons without any additional assumptions, and discussed to tailor doped near-stoichiometric LiNbO3 crystals for two-color holographic recording with cw laser light.
