Paper Abstract

With the withdrawal of Agfa-Gevaert from the manufacturing of silver-halide recording materials, there is now a need to consider some of the super fine grain materials such as those made by Slavich in Russia. This paper addresses some of the problems encountered in the initial studies of appropriate chemical processing. It is considered that the most important issue is maintenance of a unique and achromatic Bragg condition over the whole working area of the hologram since such materials will probably have their greatest direct use in the formation of contact copies into polymer in a scan coped regime. Some of the most apparent difficulties of the process methods are discussed in this paper. A second issue of major importance appears to be associated with the current inability of these materials to create uniform developed density when exposed by precision digitally controlled exposure systems. This latter problem poses serious questions over the use of Slavich materials for lithography and digital holography.
