Paper Abstract

Recent work on an acrylamide-based photopolymer holographic recording medium is presented. The lifetime of recorded gratings is improved by the addition of cross-linking monomers. Shelf life is also improved. The effects of various constituents of the photosensitive material are studied to determine an optimum composition, and five xanthene dyes are compared as possible sensitizers for the system. With the most sensitive dye and optimum concentrations of the other constituents an improved formulation is presented with high sensitivity and very high diffraction efficiency. The new formulation also works well in reflection mode.
