Abstract

Phase holograms have been recorded on Takiwax films with pulsed TEA CO2 laser light. The reconstruction from these phase holograms is accomplished by transmission at a wavelength of 0.633 μm. Holographic characteristics of the recording medium, such as diffraction efficiency vs film thickness, exposure, and spatial frequency, are presented. The capability of Takiwax films to record ir holograms of plane objects and double-exposure holographic interferograms is demonstrated.
