Abstract
High-resolution electrophotographic recording media have a number of characteristics which make them attractive for holographic data storage and laser recording. Exposure sensitivity, resolution and storage capacity are in some cases comparable to Lippmann photographic emulsions. We have evaluated the recording and storage performance of several electrophotographic recording media: Scott Graphics TEP film (absorption medium) and Kalle AG and Scott Graphics photoplastic recording films (phase media). The Scott Graphics photoplastic recording films were created by adding a 1 μm thick layer of thermoplastic to Scott Graphics P5-003 and Laser Recording TEP films. We measured various sensitometric and data storage parameters, particularly diffraction efficiency and signal-to-noise ratio, and operational properties such as performance consistency, image permanence and recyclability. Experimental data showed a broad range of exposure sensitivity, resolution and storage capacity and revealed a number of problem areas. Nonetheless, these recording materials appear promising for some holographic and laser recording applications.
