Paper Abstract

The polymeric photorefractive composite was prepared from the mixture of carbazole-substituted polysiloxane as a photoconducting medium, 2, 4, 7-trinitro-9-fluorenone as a photo-sensitizer, and 2-(3-((E)-2-(dibutylamino)-1-ethenyl)-5,5-dimethyl-2-cyclohexenyliden) malononitrile as an optically nonlinear chromophore. This polymeric composite with the thickness of 100 μm exhibited the high diffraction efficiency of 92% at the applied electric field of 30V/μm, which corresponds the refractive index modulation (Δn) of 3 x 10-3. The applications of this polymeric composite to pattern recognition are demonstrated. Character and fingerprint recognitions based on joint-transform optical correlation are successfully demonstrated.
