Abstract

The performance of photorefractive polymers has improved considerably over the last few years, leading to the recent observation of 86% diffraction efficiency and a net two-beam coupling gain of more than 200 cm-1 in a poly(N-vinylcarbazole)-based polymer doped with the azo dye 2,5-dimethyl-4-(p-nitrophenylazo)anisole. This performance by far surpasses the other organic PR materials reported to date. We report experimental results that evaluate the suitability of this polymer composite for dynamic holography and other applications.
