Paper Abstract

The refractive index modulation in photorefractive polymers with a low glass transition temperature is dominated by orientational birefringence effects. To take advantage of these effects we developed several photorefractive polymers that contain: (i) chromophores designed to have simultaneously a large dipole moment and a high linear polarizability anisotropy, (ii) nematic phase liquid crystal droplets, (iii) transparent molecules generally used for liquid crystal applications. We discuss recent advances in these three different classes materials and emphasize their merits and trade-off.
