A series of amorphous molecules that possess both photoconductive and electro-optic properties was synthesized in order to investigate photorefractive properties of bifunctional organic-glasses. Diethylaminobenzaldehyde-diphenylhydrazone was covalently attached to 5-(4-diethylamino-benzylidene)-1,3-dimethylpyrimidine-2,4,6-trione through a flexible alkyl chain (3, 4, 5, 6 and 10 carbons) containing two ether linkages. The longer linkage not only lowered the glass transition temperature (Tg) of the molecules, but also allowed faster orientation of the chromophore. To examine the photorefractive properties, a 50 μm-thick film was prepared from the mixture of a bifunctional molecule, butyl benzyl phthalate, and C60. The photoconductivity of this composite was as high as 8.01 × 10-12 S/cm at 60 V/ μm, and the maximum diffraction efficiency ( ηmax) of 50 μm-thick film was about 5% at 80 V/ μm.
