Abstract

In a holographic photopolymer system, the storage properties were often limited due to the attenuation in depth of light during the recording step. To obtain smaller values of the depth attenuation profiles in 1mm thick polyvinyl alcohol/acrylamide (PVA/acrylamide) photopolymers, we used a triangle prism, sitting one face tilted at 13.7° to the axis within the focus of a lens, to modulate the distribution of recording beams. Doing this permitted larger refractive index modulation depth to be achieved, and larger dynamic range (M#=9.2) was obtained in the PVA/acrylamide photopolymers.
