Abstract

A nonvolatile reading of erasable polarization holograms in dye-doped liquid-crystal films using the same writing wavelength is presented. The recorded hologram can be easily erased with the illumination of one p-polarized wave; nevertheless, it becomes nonvolatile when reading the hologram with one s-polarized wave. We have proven the nonvolatile reading property is induced by dye adsorption on the substrate of the sample.
