Paper Abstract

Dichromated poly(acrylic acid) (DCPAA) films have been investigated as photopolymer recording material. Thin DCPAA films with dimethylformamide have been used to photofabricate surface relief groups. The formation of these gratings depends on the self-development time in darkness subsequent to the illumination at the wavelength of 442 nm and is obtained without any chemical treatment or wet processing. In this experimental investigation, the effect of light exposure, heat treatment, and pH solution on the holographic characteristics of these gratings is studied.
