Abstract

We report an electron-probe microanalysis of a hologram recorded in a silica-nanoparticle-dispersed photopolymer film. We used S and Si atoms as label elements to identify formed polymer and nanoparticle species, respectively. It is found that the periodic density distributions of S and Si atoms are out of phase with each other, indicating that those of the formed polymer and nanoparticles are out of phase each other. This result shows decisive evidence of the mutual diffusion of monomer molecules and silica nanoparticles in the film under holographic two-beam interference exposure.
