A new holographic recording medium based on poly-2-Hydroxyethyl Methacrylate (HEMA) and visible light sensitizer is investigated. The holographic recordings are based on photo- induced polymerization of HEMA, using Camphorquinone as a visible light sensitizer. The medium has several advantages. Namely, it does not require extensive processing and survives high humidity conditions, including water immersion. Several experiments have been conducted to analyze the behavior of this medium, including analysis of recording parameters using a real-time holographic recording/playback setup, precuring, swelling, and water survivability tests. Water-immersion survivability of our material is a unique characteristic that can be incorporated in novel holographic and optical systems, such as water immersed holographic optical elements. New possibilities and applications are discussed.
