Our experience of work with the photopolymer with diffusive amplification (PDA) as an extremely thick holographic recording medium evidences many attractive properties of this material, especially for such particular applications, as very selective holographic optical elements. However, sometimes the experimentally obtained characteristics of recorded holograms differ from the expected ones. This may be caused by the insufficient knowledge on the material behavior at different regimes and its specific peculiarities. In the present paper we analyze some parameters of PDA, in particular the noise source, and kinetics of the refractive index modulation and diffraction efficiency, as compared with the dynamic photopolymer medium Reoxan. As well as discus the possibilities of application of the PDA material.
