Paper Abstract

A quasi-static electric field can enhance laser-induced diffraction rings from a nematic liquid crystal film. This phenomenon is shown to be the combined result of the critical behavior of the sample at the Freedericksz transition and the nonlinear coupling of the op-tical and quasi-static electric fields. A novel zero-crossing effect for an inclined-incident pump beam will be shown. Potential applications for the observed effect are discussed.
