We present the inscription of a Light Induced Self-Written (LISW) waveguide in a 4-cyano-4'-pentylbipheny (5CB) doped photopolymer. The dynamic reorientation of the 5CB molecules in the material under applied electric field leads to birefringence in LISW waveguide and thus allows the control of the phase of the guided mode.
