Abstract

original image

Ultrafast writing dynamics of form birefringence is experimentally demonstrated. Based on this anisotropic response created by photoinduced self-organization, rewritable 5D (X,Y,Z, birefringence slow axis direction, and retardance) optical data storage is realized by using liquid-crystal technology (see figure).
