Abstract

We demonstrate that holographic information can be stored in Eu3+-doped alkali aluminosilicate glasses. The holograms were developed by a two-beam mixing configuration with a write-beam wavelength (465.8 nm) corresponding to the 7F05D0 transition of the Eu3+ ions. The images were reconstructed either with the wavelength used to record them or with wavelengths below this transition (543.5 and 632.8 nm). We stored clear holographic images using a total writing power of 5 mW and an exposure time of 20 s. In addition, clear holograms were recorded with an exposure time of 200 ms when 100 mW of the writing power was used. The exposure time and the writing power required to obtain clear holographic images are dependent on the Eu3+ concentration.
