Paper Abstract

Some rigorous statements are made about the recording of holograms in the true edge- illuminated geometry. An essential asymmetry is outlined between the role of the substrate refractive index and that of the recording medium. Laboratory observations indicate that unique possibilities exist for recording in this regime using the photopolymers of Du Pont. Unlike any other regime of holography, numerous optical criteria have to be met simultaneously. We believe that self-induced index matching between the recording polymer layer and the substrate on which it is mounted is the key to a workable recording system.
