Paper Abstract

Optical birefringence of volume photopolymer holograms could be applied as polarization elements and an important compensated device for display. In this paper, an analysis of the optical birefringence in volume photopolymer hologram is given. This characteristic analysis is mainly based on the Kogelnik's coupled wave theory. These characteristic properties for index modulation and optical birefringence in hologram formation are theoretically analyzed with respect to the parameter of diffraction efficiency, film thickness, angular and wavelength selectivity. This paper is also considered the holograms in slanted and nonslanted structures. Results of the characteristics of optical birefringence is provided an approach to realize as an optical compensation. This study shows that the property of negative birefringence in volume photopolymer will give a newer application in liquid crystal display technology.
