Abstract

Holographic images are recorded and the diffraction characteristic of the hologram is investigated in a planar Methyl Red-doped liquid crystal film without an external electric field. Multiple holograms are stored in this film with no external electric field, and peristrophic multiplexing, angular multiplexing, and spatial multiplexing are demonstrated to be suited for the implementation of azo-dye doped liquid crystal films among the multiplexing techniques. The diffraction efficiency is theoretically studied for multiple storage. Optical reconstruction for peristrophic multiplexed holograms and angular multiplexed holograms is discussed, which involves the peristrophic rotation angles and the recording angles, respectively.
