Proceedings of the XI All-Russia Seminar “Wave Phenomena in Inhomogeneous Media”


The postexposure kinetics of photoinduced birefringence in benzaldehyde-containing polymer layers at temperatures exceeding the recording temperature have been considered. It is experimentally shown that the heating-induced photoanisotropy changes have a reversible character due to the rotational relaxation of benzaldehyde units.
