Paper Abstract

The rapid improvement of the performance of photorefractive polymers over the past few years has generated a strong technological interest for these new materials. The areas of application include holographic storage, image processing, optical correlation, and phase conjugation. This paper reviews some of our recent advances in the field of organic photorefractive materials. We will first present several new polymeric composites that combine high efficiency and long shelf lifetimes. Then we will discuss the performance of a new class of organic photorefractive materials: photorefractive polymer dispersed liquid crystals. Finally, we will present two examples of applications based on photorefractive polymers: (i) optical correlators for security verification, and (ii) imaging through scattering media in the near infra-red.
