Organic materials containing carbazole moiety are promising photonic materials for numerous applications including holographic storage, real–time optical processing, imaging, non–destructive testing and phase conjugation. The purpose of our research is the synthesis of functionalised polymers and copolymers of carbazole based derivatives containing p-nitrophenyl diazene moiety and study their optical response in thin film matrices. Some qualitative results concerning their potential in photorefractivity are reported.
