Abstract

We report on novel high-performance photorefractive polymer composites based on poly(N-vinylcarbazole) using mixtures of two isomeric electro-optically active chromophores. We demonstrate that the shelf life time of devices using the eutectic mixture is considerably improved compared with devices containing just one isomer.
