Polarization holographic gratings transform the polarization state of an incident wavefront. We have studied the diffraction properties of polarization gratings, formed with two orthogonal linearly or circularly polarized waves. For a polarization modulation recorded in the organic material bacteriorhodopsin, the diffraction efficiency and the diffracted wave polarization strongly depend on the polarization state of the readout wave. We have given a simple theoretical treatment using the Fraunhofer diffraction integral. The experimental results have been interpreted in terms of this simplified model.
