Abstract

The optical response of polarization sensitive materials is studied on the basis of a model in which the materials consist of rod molecules that are oriented in random directions. The photoinduced change of the dielectric tensor is expressed as a function of the electric field in a general form. Using this expression, we derive the vectorial coupled wave equations in volume polarization holograms. We discuss the basic properties of polarization holograms.
