Abstract

A simple theoretical model is developed that describes the recording and reconstruction of the polarization state of light in photoanisotropic materials through the use of a plane-polarized reference beam. The bipolar response of the medium to photoexcitation allows the recording of holograms with useful polarization discrimination properties.
