A family of optical devices based on elastomeric optical phase gratings is presented. These devices manipulates the phase of light by controlling, through compression, the length of its optical path through a transparent elastomeric organic polymer. An optical modulator based on an elastomeric element with a relief grating embossed on its surface illustrates an application of this type of device.
