Abstract

A theoretical analysis of space-and-time-domain holography in spectral hole-burning samples with arbitrary initial optical densities is presented, and the influence of the exposure, the initial optical density of the sample, and the shape of the homogeneous line on the diffraction efficiency (DE) of the hologram are studied. The maximum value of the first-order DE is as high as 40%.
