Volume phase holographic gratings provide the high diffraction efficiency often required from holographic optical elements. In order to provide wide angular bandwidth, high index modulation is also required. A new addition to the family of Du Pont holographic photopolymer films has significantly higher index modulation for the grating spacings typical of holographic transmission elements. In this paper, the recording of volume phase transmission gratings in this holographic photopolymer is described. The dependence of holographic properties on exposure conditions, grating characteristics, and processing are discussed. The performance characteristics of holographic optical elements produced in this material are also presented.
