Kinetics of grating inscription in DR1:DNA-CTMA thin film: experiment and semi-intercalation approach

Paper Abstract

The semi-intercalation hypothesis1–5 which states that an azo-dye Disperse Red 1 (DR1) molecule intercalates in a specific way into a biopolymeric material made of DNA complexed with the cationic surfactant CTMA, has successfully explained the main experimental results6 of laser dynamic inscription of diffraction gratings: short response time, low diffraction efficiency, single-exponential kinetics and flat wavelength dependence.4 Recent experiments indicate that the inscription of the grating displays some features of non-exponential behavior. To understand this complex dynamics we characterize local environment of polymeric chains in Monte Carlo modelling by analyzing some features of local free-volume (void) distribution.
