Abstract
For the first time the possibility to perform dual recording in cholesteric LC polymer films was demonstrated by means of helix pitch photo-tuning and holographic grating recording, as far as these two photo-processes take place under the exposure to light with different wavelengths. For this purpose the cholesteric mixture of the nematic azobenzene-containing copolymer doped with the chiral-photochromic dopant was prepared and the photo-optical properties of thin planarly-oriented films of this mixture were investigated. It was found that the holographic grating recording over [similar]1 min allows high diffraction efficiency values to be reached but does not disrupt the supramolecular helical structure that makes possible a two independent images recording.
