Zusammenfassung: A strongly temperature-dependent photo-induced transient absorption is measured in 6.5 mol% magnesium-doped lithium niobate at temperatures ranging from 45 K to 225 K. This phenomenon is interpreted as resulting from the generation and subsequent recombination of oppositely charged small polarons. Initial two-photon absorptions generate separated oppositely charged small polarons. The existence of these small polarons is monitored by the presence of their characteristic absorption. The strongly temperature-dependent decay of this absorption occurs as series of thermally assisted hops of small polarons that facilitate their merger and ultimate recombination. Our measurements span the high-temperature regime, where small-polaron jump rates are Arrhenius and strongly dependent on temperature, and the intermediate-temperature regime, where small-polaron jump rates are non-Arrhenius and weakly dependent on temperature. Distinctively, this model provides a good representation of our data with reasonable values of its two parameters: Arrhenius small-polaron hopping’s activation energy and the material’s characteristic phonon frequency.
