Paper Abstract

Process of optical creation of relief holograms from photopolymerizable compositions (PPC) was investigated theoretically and experimentally. Additional neutral components were suggested to use in the mix of the PPC. They are not concerned in the polymerization reaction, but allow increase the relief amplitude of polymeric holograms. A diffusion model was constructed for the process of these additives redistribution in not-uniformly polymerizing mediums. The model considers the polymer mobility in the initial stage of photopolymerization. It was shown, that neutral components, such as alcohol, are the most suitable for the optical formation of relief polymeric holograms. At the polymerization they spread themselves effectively, and owing to their high volatility any complementary treatments to make surface relief of a hologram are not necessary. The experimental results are represented for the relief holograms recording in the PPC, containing butyl alcohol.
