Paper Abstract

The high efficient optical phase conjugation was successfully observed in a photorefractive mesogenic composite. The photorefractive mesogenic composite consists of a functionalized copolymer, low-molar-mass liquid crystal mixture (E7) and 2-4-7-trinitro-9-fruorenone (TNF) as a sensitizing dye. Experiments of optical phase conjugation were carried out under the degenerate four wave mixing (DFWM) configuration using a frequency-doubled Nd-YAG laser of 532 nm (on-resonant) or a He-Ne laser of 633 nm (off-resonant). The refractive index modulation was estimated to be around 2.5 X 10-3 from the phase conjugate reflectance on the basis of the coupled wave theory including the absorption loss of the photorefractive media.
