Abstract

Holographic recording media with a reflection layer are useful because they make it possible to maintain backward compatibility with CDs and DVDs, and a conventional servo system is easily attachable. The incident beam is fed back to the recording layer by the reflection layer, so there are four beam pairs to record the transmission and reflection holograms. We analyze the basic property of the transmission and reflection holograms and evaluate the problem when the transmission and reflection holograms are recorded at the same time. It is shown that the shrinkage in the photopolymer medium has a different effect on each hologram, so the readout image from the two holograms is misaligned. Those diffraction beams make the interference pattern, and the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the output image decreased. Taking into account the difference in wavelength selectivity between the transmission and the reflection holograms, we propose a way to select one hologram to get the diffraction beam and eliminate the interference pattern using the tuning readout wavelength. By using this method, we can eliminate the diffraction beam from the reflection hologram and keep a high SNR.
