Paper Abstract

Alternative holographic material for replication by thermo-polymerization is the thermoplastic nail varnish. We reported the experimental result with spectroscopy and thin layer chromatographic analysis about chemical constitution of the material. Moreover, we show that the thermoplastic nails varnish can be considered as a phase material. Adequate replication of some structure into of film can be recorded as modulation of refraction index. The major improvements from this material are: good diffraction efficiency, reduced cost, easily to apply on any substrate and the hologram is making with out develop process.
