Paper Abstract

General characteristics of photopolymer imaging systems are reviewed with comments on applicability for laser recording. Two imaging systems are emphasized in detail; namely, a Dylux® proofing paper material which produces a visible dye on exposure to UV and an experimental holographic photopolymer. A review of the characteristics of these materials is presented. Formulation variations for the color forming Dylux® are noted which have potential for improved laser recording response. After reviewing exposure procedures and diffraction characteristics of the experimental holographic photopolymer, applications and comments on potential new developments are given. Finally, a brief description of a new 'KTP' crystal-potassium titanyl phosphate - is described which is ideal for frequency doubling neodymium lasers.
