Abstract
The effect of the introduction of micro-domains in polymer films on the photorefractive effect was investigated. The photorefractivity of side-chain liquid crystalline polymers that possess a hydrogen-bonding moiety was examined using a four-wave mixing experiment. The photorefractivity was compared to that of a polymer which has no hydrogen-bonding moiety. A significant difference was found in the photorefractivity between hydrogen-bonding polymers and non-hydrogen-bonding polymers. This difference was likely due to the presence of micro-domain structures in the polymers with the hydrogen-bonding moieties.
