10/04/2021: P.-A. Blanche, J.-W. Ka, N. Peyghambarian, “Review of Organic Photorefractive Materials and Their Use for Updateable 3D Display“, materials (MDPI), Materials 2021, 14, 5799. Link

In this article we are reviewing:

  • The photorefractive effect.
  • The specific characteristics for a material to be used in 3D display.
  • The different molecules found in photorefractive polymers.
  • How to make samples for holographic display.
  • The setup to record and display 3 color holographic 3D stereograms.

This issue will cover any material that interacts with the
light electromagnetic field and modifies either their own
properties or those of the field. Including:

  • Nonlinear optical material (Kerr, two-photon
    absorption, saturable absorber),
  • Photorefractive materials (crystal, polymer, hybrid).
  • Photochromic materials (glass, azo-dye, chromophore).
  • Spectral and orientational hole-burning.
  • Plasmonic and photonics material and structures (optical nano-antenna, active nanoparticles).
  • 2D material for optics (graphene, RGO, MoS 2 , WS 2 ).
  • Metamaterials (negative index, gradient index, optical cloaking).
  • Magneto-optics material (high Verdet constant, optical isolator).
  • Material for quantum optic (single photon emitter/detector, quantum state storage, nonlinear processing).
