Abstract

Two-dimensional (2D) polarization patterns are achieved by the interference of two pairs of beams with perpendicular planes of incidence and orthogonal polarizations (i.e. linear or circular). In both cases, imposing a phase shift of π/2 between consecutive beams contains the amplitude modulation of the optical field in the superposition region and, thus, pure 2D polarization patterns are created. The recording of these interference fields in a polarization-sensitive material, namely an amorphous azopolymer, creates reconfigurable 2D periodic microstructures with peculiar diffraction properties.
