Abstract

The development of investigations in recent years on photopolymerizable recording holographic media for using as photosensitive layers of holographic optical disks, which satisfy the conditions for the application in archive optical memory is analyzed. It is shown that the main emphasis in the development of photopolymerizable holographic recording media is put on the improvement of their component composition. Formulations that permit joint radical and cationic photopolymerization were designed for thermally stable holographic recording. The holographic characteristics achieved for these media ensure the fabrication of single-layer optical disks 150 mm in diameter with the information capacity of 200 GB instead of 5 GB for modern optical disks. Ways of improving photopolymerizable holographic recording media for the manufacture of optical disks with an information capacity of more than 1 Tb cm−3 are considered.
