An ideal material for the application of holography would be defined as a material that has a sensitivity suited to existing lasers, a high resolution, a linear transfer function, and a low noise ; it is also indefinetely recyclable, and it is relatively cheap. Numerous efforts have been made to produce this sort of material. We examine the principal recording materials used in holography that now exist.
