Abstract

The holographic characteristics of Agfa-Gevaert Scientia 10E75 have been examined for multiple exposures. They include not only diffraction efficiency, but SNR and resolution as functions of number of exposures, time of development, and/or input modulation (ρ′). The maximum diffraction efficiency, occurring at a density of 0.7, was observed to increase with increasing development time and decrease as the number of exposures increased. An ≈ 10% decrease in maximum diffraction efficiency was observed for each successive reconstructed image of a multiple exposure hologram. Reconstructed noise was found to be fairly well represented by grain-noise considerations only for the region 0.1 < ρ′ < 0.4. Elsewhere noise is considerably different from grain-noise predictions. The SNR, at a density of 0.7, was observed to increase from 50 to 85 as the number of exposures increased from one to four. For postexposure or preexposure holograms the maximum signal-to-noise and resolution peaked near an input modulation of 0.4.
