Paper Abstract

Photochemical characterization and holographic recording of fulgide Aberchrome 670 and 540-doped polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA) were investigated. Upon UV and visible exposure, closed-form absorbency followed first-order kinetic. The real time holographic recording in fulgides doped PMMA films were studied. The effect of dye concentration, thickness of the film and the recording intensity on diffraction efficiency was reported. We used the Langmuir-Blodgett (LB) technique in order to transferring a compact multilayer of fulgide spread on water surface between two thin films of cellulose acetate (CA). The preliminary results of the surface pressure-area isotherms obtained by LB show the transfer of the fulgide between two CA thin films. Finally, the photochromic reaction of fulgide in LB films was investigated.
