    The photorefractivity and chromophore orientation in polymer composites were studied. The composites were made from poly-N-vinylcarbazole, N-ethylcarbazole, and (2,4,7-trinitro-9-fluorenylidene)malonodinitrile with a fluorinated cyano-tolane chromophore. The transient photorefractive response in four-wave mixing (FWM) and two-beam coupling (TBC) was measured. Transient FWM revealed a photorefractive response dominated by a fast time constant of 4 ms, while transient ellipsometry revealed an orientational response of only 490 μs.
