Abstract

Volume diffraction gratings (VDGs) are inscribed selectively by diffusive introduction of benzophenone and subsequent UV‐holographic structuring into an electroactive dielectric elastomer actuator (DEA), to afford a continuous voltage‐controlled grating shift of 17%. The internal stress coupling of DEA and optical domain allows for a new generation of true monolithic tunable elastomer optics with voltage controlled properties.
