Paper Abstract

Resonant optical nonlinearity caused by absorption saturation of dye-stuffs in the selective reflection spectra region of chiral liquid crystals (CLC) was for the first time used for dynamic holography grating recording. Such a type of nonlinearity was accompanied with low recording times (about 10 picoseconds) and a rather high diffractive efficiency of 10 - 20%.
