Abstract : Experimental studies on the recording of surface relief gratings on azobenzene containing polymer films using laser beams with different polarizations were carried out. The results indicate that the localized variations of light intensity and alternation of the resultant electric field polarization in the film are essential to the formation of the surface relief gratings.
