Paper Abstract

By the means of neutron diffraction experiment a mass transport mechanism during the recording process in holographic storage materials is investigated. In contrast to optical experiments with laser light neutron experiments we have the advantage to separate the influence of the mass transport from other recording mechanism, e.g., electron density modulation. However, to make quantitative statements on the mass density modulation the coherence properties of the neutron beam have to be known. Its characteristics strongly influence the result of the diffraction experiment. In this paper we develop an extension of the diffraction theory for monochromatic plane wave on incoherent radiation.
