Zusammenfassung: 
Congruent SBN and BCT crystals doped with Fe, Cr, Ce to enhance photorefractive properties, are investigated at low temperature (T>1 K) under illumination with Ar+- and Kr+-laser light. Light-induced absorption changes in a wide spectral range from UV to IR indicate photoinduced charge transfer processes from impurities to polaronic centers. Broad NIR absorptions (at about 0,7 eV) associated with Ti3+ polarons in BCT or with Nb4+ polarons in SBN are observed and their non-linear behaviour with illumination intensity, polarization and temperature is described on the basis of the simple model for the photo charge transport (in SBN: Ce3+ Nb5+ <----> Ce4++ Nb4+). A broad visible absorption VIS (at about 2 eV) appearing together with the NIR polarons, is shown by photodissociation (with a Kr+-laser) to consist at least partly of small polarons (in BCT and SBN).
