28 April 1994 Liquid crystal nonlinear optics versus photorefractives
Author Affiliations +
We present a discussion of the physics and nonlinear optical properties of liquid crystals in processes and phenomena where photorefractive crystals are currently being applied. The broadband birefringence and nonlinearities of liquid crystals spanning the visible to the far infrared, and recent successful observation of novel nonlinear optical phenomena in bulk liquid crystalline film or optical fiber, show that they are potentially very useful materials for technological applications.
