The incorporation of photorefractive molecular units, such as carbazole, into anisotropic materials (liquid crystals) may offer many advantages over conventional electrical poling of photorefractive polymers. Thus, a series of symmetric 3,6-disubstituted carbazole derivatives with a bent molecular shape have been synthesized and characterized. The influence of the nature of the symmetric substituents on the carbazole is investigated through comparison of crystal packing and electrostatic potentials.
