Realization of highly efficient holographic structures can be obtained by combining the polymer liquid crystal polymer slices (POLICRYPS) technique and the use of a spatial light modulator. To achieve this result, a new prepolymer mixture is necessary that is sensitive to visible light and fulfills all requirements of the POLICRYPS technique. In this paper, we report on our efforts to realize this new mixture and on the first attempts made for fabricating one-dimensional POLICRYPS gratings. Newly obtained diffractive structures have been compared with standard POLICRYPS showing negligible differences.
