ABSTRACT
We demonstrate that low molar mass discotic liquid crystals can be used for holographic storage. Grating structures are optically induced and stored in the glassy state of the investigated liquid crystal. The material is suitable for multiple storage processes since the stored information can be erased by heating the sample above the glass transition temperature.
