Paper Abstract

This paper discusses material behaviors of holographic materials in terms of mechanical, thermomechanical properties and their effects on optical efficiency. Experiments were carried out to characterize coefficient of thermal expansion, stress strain curves, and dynamic mechanical behaviors of photopolymers. It has been found that in-plane deformation of photopolymer has a minimum effect on the diffraction efficiency while out-of-plane deformation can significantly contribute to the diffraction efficiency of holographic optical elements.
