147. Three-dimensional vector holograms in photoreactive polymer dissolved liquid crystal composite, T. Sasaki, H. Ono and N. Kawatsuki, Opt. Rev. 16 (2009) 338-341.


A detailed analysis of three-dimensional vector holograms is presented which were recorded in a photoreactive polymer dissolved liquid crystal. The diffraction properties of resultant periodic anisotropic structures were investigated. Experimental observations confirmed that the diffraction efficiencies of the structures varied with slight changes of the grating pitch, and also that they strongly depended on the incident angle of the probe beam. These diffraction properties were explained by the finite-difference time-domain optical simulations.
