Organic photorefractive materials have received increasing attention for photonic applications due to their high performance level and their ease of processing. Here, we present functionalized polymer dispersed liquid crystals that exhibit strong photorefractive properties. Their properties are investigated by wave-mixing experiments and their performance compared with photorefractivc polymers and photorefractive liquid crystals.
