Abstract

We fabricate and characterize a novel holographic recording photopolymer named ZnMA/PQ co-doped PMMA, a poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) doped with two materials: zinc methacrylate (ZnMA) and 9,10-phenanthrenequinone (PQ) molecules. A technique for fabricating thick samples of 2 mm thick is described. The optical and holographic characteristics of the samples are experimentally investigated. The results show that by adding ZnMA, the material M/# and sensitivity for holographic recording have been improved.
