    Push-pull molecules are the most widely used nonlinear optical chromophores incorporated in polymers to generate photorefractivity. They are at the origin of the Pockels and the Kerr electrooptic effects in high-T[sub g] photorefractive polymers and give also rise to the optical birefringence in...

    It is demonstrated that the microscopic mechanism of the photorefractive (PR) effect in organic composites with low glass transition temperatures involves the formation of refractive index gratings through a space-charge field-modulated Kerr effect. A tensorial formulation of the macroscopic...
