Paper Abstract

A comparison between Western commercial silver-halide emulsions and the Russian ultra-fine- grained emulsions for holography has been performed. Single-beam reflection holograms of the Denisyuk type were recorded using continuous-wave lasers. This recording scheme was selected since it represents a rather simple and stable holographic setup, but an extremely demanding one on the recording materials. Various processing schemes were applied to obtain high-quality holograms. Phillips' three-step processing technique, fixation-free rehalogenating bleaching, reversal bleaching, and solution-physical development were all investigated. In particular, diffraction efficiency, image resolution, scattering, and signal-to-noise ratio were studied as a function of emulsion and processing method. For comparison, some recordings were also made on other popular materials in common use in holography.
