Abstract
We report an enhanced laser induced polarization switching and holography in a novel photo-reconfigurable material system that contains polymer backbone impregnated by a soft liquid crystal material. The backbone of polymer chains is reconfigurable and the surrounding movable liquid crystal molecules are reoriented collectively anchoring toward the reconfigured polymer chains, resulting in remarkable enhancement of anisotropic refractive index modulation suitable for updatable holographic recording. The dynamic polymer-liquid crystal network strengthening concept enables significant enhancement of holographic performance with controllable updatability.
