Abstract
The holographic-recording characteristics of a very sensitive photopolymer recently made available to CRC for trial by E.I. duPont de Nemours are discussed. Upon exposure a latent image forms in the material which is then photically processed to produce a final image in terms of refractive- index variations. The material is thus extremely well suited to the recording of volume phase holograms. The principles of operation of the material and its properties pertaining to holography are reviewed. Experimental data are given which confirm the theoretical prediction that 100 per cent diffraction efficiencies can be approached with this type of material. The photopolymer seems well suited to holographic applications where in situ development or extremely high diffraction efficiency is required.
