Paper Abstract

Holographic gratings recorded in photopolymer media are formed by mechanisms different from those that form gratings in silver halide media. Unlike the latent images formed in silver halide media (prior to chemical development), phase-only holograms in photopolymer media start to form almost immediately upon exposure. Measurement of the holographic grating growth with time provides information about the underlying photochemical and diffusion processes, and can also be useful in the control of exposure and processing. Experimental techniques for measuring the evolving grating are discussed, and illustrated with measurements made on Polaroid's DMP-128 photopolymer holographic recording material.
