Abstract

To our knowledge only one processing formula for silver-halide sensitized gelatin (SHSG) derived from Agfa-Gevaert holographic plates has been published in the current literature, which is apparently a result of the extremely high degree of hardening of the gelatin emulsion. We propose a modified processing formula for SHSG derived from Agfa-Gevaert plates. The holographic characteristics of the processed SHSG plates were measured and high diffraction efficiency, as high as 80%, and an almost flat spatial-frequency response within the region of interest were achieved. Some of our observations during the experiments are discussed. The behavior of the gelatin emulsion was consistent with the models for processing dichromated gelatin. We observed swelling rather than the shrinkage expected from the removal of the silver-halide grains. This swelling can be controlled by postbaking.
