Monolithic photorefractive organic glass......

A monolithic photorefractive organic glass with large gain coefficients at low electric fields is presented. The molecule DCDHF-6 acts simultaneously as charge transport material and nonlinear optical chromophore. Strong beam fanning is observed with suppression of the initial beam to 25 % of its initial value in samples only 100 um thick (W.E. Moerner et al, Feb. 19; Adv. Mater. 2002, 14, 313-317).
