Paper Abstract

Many experimental investigations are performed to produce new optical recording materials for holography. They intend to improve applications such as the construction of holographic optical elements (HOEs), filters, aberration correctors, and nondestructive testing as well as optical data storage. All of these applications require materials with high optical performances. Because of their excellent ability to record high spatial frequency gratings, photopolymers are seen as promising holographic recording media. Indeed, one of the greatest photopolymers advantages is their high theoretical molecular resolving power. The addition of dichromate salts to a variety of water-soluble polymers such as gelatin, albumin and poly (-vinyl alcohol) (PVA) generally results in photosensitive materials which become insoluble in water after exposure to the action of light. This paper presents investigations on dichromated poly (-vinyl alcohol) emulsions (DC-PVA).
