Paper Abstract

Photosensitive films composed of dye, initiator, acrylic monomers, and polymeric film-forming binder, and their use in recording volume phase transmission and reflection holograms are described. Systematic variation of monomer-binder combinations reveals that the maximum attainable index modulation (hologram efficiency) increases with increasing difference between the refractive indices of monomer and binder. Addition of plasticizer is also useful for increasing index modulation. Thermal and wet chemical processing methods for altering hologram properties are described.
