Abstract

Unusual multimodal kinetics of diffraction efficiency in the cycle of hologram recording and erasing were observed in the recording media for the holographic photothermoplastic technique. It was shown that this effect is caused by competition between the simultaneous development of regular and random “frosty” surface reliefs of the photoconducting polymer film during the hologram development. The mechanism explaining the decrease of the maximal diffraction efficiency as compared to its calculated value is discussed.
