Evolution of optical properties of polymer-liquid crystal dispersions on the basis of acrylate monomers and nematic liquid crystals generated by photopolymerization method with use of principles of holography is experimentally investigated. It is shown that optical (holographic) methods allow creating structures from traditional polymer-dispersed scatter-ing systems to periodic, showing diffraction properties gratings.
