A family of photorefractive polymer composites that enable high-performance device operation at a wavelength of 975 nm were analyzed. It was observed that the gratings of photorefractive polymer could be written within ten milliseconds. It was also observed that the diffraction efficiency from these gratings reached 60% and there was a two-beam coupling gain of 130 cm -1. It was found that there was a possibility of achieving faster response times within this family of polymer composites.
