Abstract

A photorefractive polymer composite sensitized at 1550 nm through direct two-photon absorption has been developed. We show an external diffraction efficiency of 3% in four-wave-mixing experiments and perform holographic reconstruction of distorted images utilizing thin-film devices made of this polymer composite. Amongst other potential applications, the demonstration of accurate, dynamic aberration correction through holography in this all-organic photorefractive device presents an alternative to complex adaptive optics systems currently employed in through-air optical communication links.
