The holographic storage capacity of an azo dye-doped polymer is demonstrated using a self- referenced interferometer in a two-wave mixing arrangement. The system possesses the ability to store absorption gratings and has the peculiar property of being able to record the complete polarization of the incident light field. The film is used to store a wavefront which is compared to its displaced version at a later time. Diffraction efficiencies of up to 10% have been observed. A theoretical description and experimental results of the interferometer are presented as well as a description of the dye/polymer system in various polarization configurations.
