Paper Abstract

A new family of organic-inorganic hybrid materials will be introduced as an undoubted candidate for advanced photonics applications. Alternating oxo-copolymers modified with organic functional groups were prepared through solventless and catalyst-free process. A variety of optical functional centers such as rare-earth ion, organic dye and metal/semiconductor nano-particles can be introduced into the systems with an excellent dispersivity to attain efficient optical activities. In the present paper, doping of rhodamine 6G dye or/and Au particles, etc., was demonstrated. Reversible photorefractive effect was observed in dye-doped hybrid thin film. Photothermal processing was used to attain such a reversible effect in combination with the slow dynamics of glassy nature of the photorefractive material. Rewritable holographic memory with a novel operating mechanism was studied.
