Polymer lightguides ofPMMA, doped with azo 4yes are investigated with respect to their opto-optical or all optical properties. The TRANS-CIS photoisomerisation of the azo dye molecules leads to a reasonable polarization dependent birefringence. This azo dye system is taken as an example for a bifunctional dye system: Adding a UV photorefractive material a combination of UV-structurability and photoinduced reversible birefringence can be obtained.
