FIG. 1.

Schematic of the experimental setup for investigating optically switchable biphotonic gratings (BGs) in dye-doped cholesteric liquid crystal (DDCLC) films; : green beam; : red pump beams; : probe beam; , : polarizers; : quarter waveplate for .

FIG. 2.

(a) Optical switching feature of the first-order diffraction beam from the BG and (b) the diffraction pattern of the probed red beam from a stable BG based on a DDCLC cell.

FIG. 3.

Dynamics of transmitted intensity of a probe beam when an analyzer A (crossed with ) is inserted behind the cell during excitation of green beam with four intensities and a pumped red beam with an intensity of . The inset figure plots the variation of angle of rotation of the polarization of the probe beam due to the optical activity of the DDCLC cell with the green-beam intensity.
