Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


We review the physics and performance of recently developed photorefractive polymers that exhibit refractive index modulation amplitudes of 0.007 and net gain coefficients in excess of 200 cm-1. Several examples of applications based on these materials are presented. Future trends in materials and related optical system developments are discussed.
