Abstract:

This six month grant provided a continuation at Stanford University of AFOSR Grant No. F49620-96-1-0135, which ended 31 Mar 1999 at the University of California, San Diego UCSD. During the period of this grant, accomplishments are of note. A major study of the effect of nonlinear chromophore energetic on the several speed of photorefractive polymers showed that rational design can improve the properties of these materials. Second, the entire laboratory moved from UCSD to Stanford University in July 1999. During this time, a major review article on photorefractive polymers for the Encyclopedia of Materials Science and Technology was completed Pub. 171. Finally, in the new laboratories at Stanford, a first demonstration of fast image amplification with photorefractive polymers was completed.
