Abstract
Photopolymer materials exhibit good characteristics when used as holographic recording media. Extensive studies have been carried out on the behavior of the various chemical components in such materials, with photosensitizers in particular receiving much attention. In all previous analysis of photopolymer kinetics, the effects of photosensitiser diffusion have been neglected. For rapid sequential holographic recordings in photopolymers, for example, in an application such as holographic data storage, dye diffusion effects may become more pronounced. Therefore, we examine the dye diffusion effects of erythrosine B in an acrylamide/polyvinyl alcohol material. This is achieved using simple experimental techniques and a proposed theoretical model.
