Two effcient optical methods are demonstrated to improve the formation of surface relief grating (SRG). The SRG formation is realized by a two-beam interference technique (lambda = 532 nm) in an azobenzene side-chain copolymer. An incoherent UV beam (lambda = 355 nm) or an incoherent VIS beam (lambda = 532 nm), called assisting beam, was used to accelerate the photoisomerization process of the cis-form-trans-form cycle, resulting in an efficient formation of SRG. The dependence of the di ffraction efficiency and the relief depth of the SRGs on the polarizations of both assisting beams were investigated showing two di fferent assisting mechanisms.
