Monolithic photorefractive glasses...
based on new nonlinear optical chromophores containing a 2-dicyanomethylene-3-cyano-2,5-dihydrofurane (DCDHF) acceptor group exhibit large net two-beam coupling gain coefficients in both red and infrared wavelength regions. The thermal, photoconductive, orientational, and photorefractive properties of glasses based on various DCDHF-containing derivatives are compared and analyzed. (W. E.
