Paper Abstract

Polarization holographic gratings convert or transform a polarization state of incident wave front. We have studied the diffraction properties of polarization gratings, which formed with two orthogonal linearly or circularly polarized waves. At a polarization modulation recorded on organic material bacteriorhodopsin, the diffraction efficiency and the diffracted wave polarization strongly depend on the read-out wave. We have practiced several simple theoretical treatments, namely Fraunhofer diffraction integral. The experimental results have been interpreted in terms of these simplified models.
