Abstract

Cellulose acetate films doped with the azo dye Disperse Red 1 were prepared by dip coating. This matrix provides holograms of comparable efficiency for gratings recorded by intensity and polarization modulations. We used this matrix to store and successfully reconstruct the polarization state of an elliptically polarized object beam. A single plane-polarized reference beam was used for both recording and reconstruction.
