Paper Abstract

Polarization hologram provides some unique features over classical phase or amplitude hologram. One of the most important features is that the photo-induced anisotropy in those materials leads to the polarization-dependent diffraction from the hologram. This property is useful for many applications, such as optical interconnection, holographic data storage and bio-imaging …etc. Recently, the 9, 10-phenanthrenequinone -doped poly(methyl methacrylate) (PQ/PMMA) photopolymer with cm thickness has attracted intense research interesting for the volume holographic applications because the experiments demonstrated that PQ/PMMA photopolymers possess not only high optical quality but also negligible shrinkage effect under light exposure [3-5]. Additionally, in terms of chemical formula, the PQ/PMMA consists of planar structures PQ molecules dispersed in amorphous PMMA polymer so that it is possible to be oriented if irradiated with polarized light, resulting in a photoinduced birefringence. This phenomenon makes it capable for permanent polarization holographic recording via photochemical reaction. Thus, combining these two properties may make PQ/PMMA photopolymer attractive for volume polarization holographic applications. In this paper, we particularly characterize polarization holographic recording in our materials for high-density data storage. Then, we will demonstrate a in-line polarization holographic memory system using PQ/PMMA photopolymer.
