A modular approach to the synthesis of photorefractive polymers
based on grafting of components onto siloxane polymers and post-graft
chemical synthesis is presented. The strategy leads to bi-functional
photorefractive polymers with net gain and can, in principle,
be optimized by combinatorial methods.
