New families of transmission and reflection holographic photopolymer materials and their performance are described. The materials are composed of polymeric binders, monomers, initiation system, and sensitizing dyes. The physical and holographic properties may be controlled by choice of components. Photopolymerization and diffusion of monomers is the proposed mechanism for recording of refractive index modulation. The materials are sensitized from the Uv to the red with typical exposure energies form 10 to 100 mJ/cm2. Hologram recording consists of exposure, UV cure, and heat processing. Significant refractive index modulation occurs during exposure. Processed holograms are insensitive to humidity and temperature. Holographic properties and performance of various formulations are discussed, as well as applications of these materials.
