Photorefractivity and Holographic Storage Effect in Fullerene C60-Doped Nematic Liquid Crystals

  • I. C. Khoo (a1), M. V. Wood (a1) and Brett D. Guenther (a1)

Abstract:

The results of a recent study of a nonlinear electro-optical effect in fullerene C60-doped nematic liquid crystal film are presented. In particular, photo-induced conduction, self diffraction effect, and permanent holographic formation in the films are explained.
