We present a study on the effects of the dark conductivity on the photorefractive performance of polymers doped with styrene-based chromophores. We find that reducing dark conductivity in such composites increases diffraction efficiency and at the same time decreases the response time. We use a polymer composite based on a polyvinylcarbazole matrix doped with 4-Homopiperidinobenzylidenemalononitrile (7- DCST), sensitized with C60, and plasticized with N- ethylcarbazole (ECZ) and butyl benzyl phthalate (BBP). The reduction of the dark conductivity is achieved by coating one of the electrodes with a SiO blocking layer.
