Abstract

The development of suitable recording media for applications such as holographic optical elements and holographic data storage are of significant research and commercial interest. In this paper, a photopolymer material developed by Bayer MaterialScience is examined using various optical techniques and then characterised using the Non-local Photopolymerization Driven Diffusion model. This material demonstrates the capabilities of a new class of photopolymer offering high index modulation, full colour recording, high light sensitivity and environmental stability. One key result of this study is the material’s high spatial frequency resolution, indicating a very low non-local effect, thus qualifying it as a very good storage medium.
