Paper Abstract

The cycling properties of photothermoplastics based on Staybelite Ester 10 can be improved to several thousands of recording cycles. It needs a chemical purification of as received Staybelite Ester 10 and the use of relatively thick thermoplastic and photoconductive layers. So it is possible to preserve both high diffraction efficiency and good cycling properties. Such devices are specially suited to variable beam steering and optical switching.
