1 December 1991 Coupled-mode analysis of dynamic polarization volume holograms
Author Affiliations +
A new theory is presented that describes the writing and readout of polarization volume holograms in dynamic photoanisotropic organic materials (DPOMs). Based on the coupled mode theory, the stationary coupled differential equations, which incorporate self diffraction, of two recording beams are derived in the slowly varying amplitude approximation. From these equations, the intensity and phase of the recording beams at steady state can be studied so that the final recorded polarization hologram can be described. The analytic solutions are presented for orthogonal linear and orthogonal circular recording geometries. Under the assumption of a weak probe beam, the readout equations are derived and the diffraction efficiency of polarization volume holograms is analytically solved. Numerical simulation results are provided and compared with the analytic solutions.
