Abstract

Recent research on an acrylamide-based photopolymerizable holographic recording material is presented. The recording characteristics of the material are discussed in detail in terms of sensitivity, diffraction efficiency, recording linearity, resolution limit, and sources of noise. Although the resolution is not sufficient for reflection holography, the recording characteristics are excellent for transmission gratings. The material was found to suffer no shrinkage during recording, and high-diffraction-efficiency slanted gratings were made. Finally, the suitability of this self-developing material to both double-exposure and real-time holographic interferometry is demonstrated.
