Abstract The article deals with properties of the polymer-liquid crystal composites formed by optical holography and modified by carbon nanoparticles. The influence of the composition, formation modes, prepolymer composition characteristics on electro-optical properties of the obtained holographic reflective and polarization gratings is discussed. The effect of the modification of the polymer-liquid crystal composites by doping with carbon nanoparticles up to 0,1 % on the exploitation characteristics of the recorded gratings is discussed.
