Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


A new unique way is proposed to improve the shelf-life time of current PR (organic photorefractive) polymer devices using mixtures of two isomeric electro-optically (EO) active chromophores. Because 2,5DMNPAA has proven to exhibit excellent PR performance, the isomer with 3,5-dimethyl substitution is additionally chosen.
