We report on electrically-driven diffraction grating, where refractive index of a liquid crystal (LC) was modulated periodically at an interval of 700 nm by applying an external DC bias to a metallic nanograting (NG). The LC-NG structure exhibited a maximum refractive index variation (Δn) of 0.088 and a diffraction efficiency (η) change of 0-16% with a large diffraction angle of 64° for incident light of 633 nm wavelength. This approach, with the help of faster electronics, provides an opportunity of developing active holograms for real 3D display
