Abstract

We present a photorefractive hybrid liquid crystal system that allows strong photorefractive effects on surface plasmon polaritons. We demonstrate its capability to couple energy between two 1.03 eV surface plasmon polariton modes with an efficiency of 25.3±2.3%. We present the energy and grating pitch dependence of the diffraction and a model that can qualitatively explain them.
