Abstract

We report the observation of orientational gratings induced by the photorefractive effect in dye-doped polymer-dispersed liquid crystals. The photorefractive origin of the grating-induction effect is supported by the results of two-beam coupling experiments and by the possibility of erasing the grating by uniform illumination. For all the samples a stable memory effect was observed.
