Paper Abstract

The relationship between diffraction efficiency of a reflection hologram and the thickness and absorption coefficient of a recording medium was studied. The diffraction efficiency of a reflection hologram was found to increase monotonically with a decrease in the absorption coefficient (alpha) of the recording medium, but varies nonmonotonically with an increase of the thickness T of the recording medium. Maximum diffraction efficiency was obtained with T and (alpha) satisfied the relationship T equals 1/(alpha) . Finally, we suggest a method to improve the quality of reflection holograms.
