Abstract

Peculiar light–matter interactions can break the rule that a single beam polarization can address only two states in an optical memory device. Multistate storage of a single beam polarization is achieved using self-induced surface diffraction gratings in a photoactive polymer material. The grating orientation follows the incident light beam’s polarization direction. The permanent self-induced surface relief grating can be read out in real time using the same laser beam.

Intensity of the first order of diffraction measured as a function of time for different laser beam intensities. The time threshold value for the SRG recording is calculated with the second-derivative threshold calculation method, which locates the point of maximum rate of change of the curve.
