Symmetric and asymmetric diffusers with a directional diffusion property were both fabricated based on a photopolymerizable hologram material using an ionic liquid as an additive. The diffusion property can be regulated by changing the concentration of the ionic liquid. The fiber structure, the surface-relief structure, and the formation of nanoparticles led to the directional diffusion property of the diffuser.
