Paper Abstract

A new self-developing recording material with silver bromide nanoparticles and photopolymerization system has been prepared and tested as a recording medium for optical holography. Through the method of the real-time measurement of a diffraction grating growth, we have shown that an efficient volume phase grating is formed during a holographic exposure. The refractive index modulation of the formed grating is several times higher than in the case of standard acrylamide-based photopolymers with a similar composition. The material response on different exposure parameters has been measured and obtained results have been discussed. The transfer of nanoparticles within the recording layer, which is the main cause of the grating growth, has been experimentally verified through the direct observation of the grating micro-structure with the scanning electron microscope.
