Paper Abstract

Polarization holographic gratings were inscribed in azobenzene side chain polymer films. The polarization gratings were produced using two orthogonally circularly polarized beams and the resulting stable transmission gratings were studied using a low power HeNe laser. The gratings were observed to efficiently separate left and right circularly polarized light from the probe beam and two generate two elliptically polarized beams in the first order diffraction direction.
