Abstract

A stable polymer composite that was prepared by mixing the dye DHADC-MPN with an inert polymer-plasticer matrix has been developed. An unprecendented polymer composite with two-beam coupling gain coefficient of 225 cm-1 at 50 V/μm, and an external diffraction efficiency of 71% was achieved at an external field of 28 V/μm for 633-nm operation. The addition of 0.18 wt.% of TNFDM greatly reduces the buildup time and slightly improves the photorefractive response.
