Paper Abstract

Holograms recorded in dichromated gelatin can easily be destroyed when subjected to high temperatures. In this work, a new treatment of holographic dichromated gelatin layers that improves remarkably the hologram life time under adverse thermal conditions, is presented: exposing the developed hologram to microwave radiaton. Similar holograms were subjected to microwave radiation for variable timelengths and then subjected to heating. The resultant angular and spectral bandwidths were measured after different heating time intervals. Some preliminary results will be presented. The role of water in holograms made with dicromated gelatin will be discussed, in this new context.
