Theoretical analysis of photorefractivity in dye-doped nematic liquid crystal film is discussed. Analytical solutions of refractive index distribution and the first order diffraction efficiency are presented. The relationship between the diffraction efficiency and the applied DC voltage shows very good agreement to the experimental result in photorefractive region.
