Polysilylenes – Functionalized Materials for Photorefractivity
S. Nespurek, J. Sworakowski, F. Kajzar and C. Combellas

Polysilylenes seem to be suitable materials for use as photorefractive media, due to an efficient charge carrier photogeneration and reasonably high charge carrier mobilities in these polymers. Of particular interest are polysilylenes containing polar chromophores, whose presence results in creation of a new type of dipolar traps in their vicinity which influence the formation of internal electric field.
