Paper Abstract

The holographic recording on the photosensitive medium with Weigert's effect in the general case of linear polarization of the object wave is investigated theoretically and experimentally. A simple analysis shows that it is possible to record and reconstruct the plane lightwave with all possible linear polarization in this case. The experiment conducted confirms rather well the analysis results. For the first time, an investigation is carried out in the case where the linear polarization changes continuously along the cross section of the object wave, which is important for some practical applications in the problems of optical memory and optical information processing.
