11 December 2001 Optical recording of holograms in azo-polymer-stabilized nematic liquid crystals
Author Affiliations +
A random oriented azo-polymer stabilized nematic liquid crystal is synthesized and used to record anisotropic holograms. An azo-dye is chemically attached to a diacrylate monomer at a base of the polymer network that can be optically reoriented with a polarized laser beam with (lambda) equals 514.5 nm. Raman-Nath scalar and vectorial gratings are recorded in 5-micrometers thick electro-optic cell without alignment layer. The electro-optical switch of the diffraction is realized using a moderate dc electric field of 6 V/micrometers .
