Abstract

We show the possibility of detecting small anisotropies in holographic polymer dispersed liquid-crystal samples, using a simple experimental setup that allows us to determine the behavior of the diffraction efficiency versus incident angle for two reading polarizations. This analysis is extremely sensitive to small changes in the parameters that define the grating anisotropy, giving us a way to determine with great accuracy the components of the modulated part of the dielectric tensor.
