Transformation of color centers during hologram recording in an additively colored CaF2 crystal

When holograms are recorded on color centers in calcium fluoride crystals, these centers undergo spatial redistribution in the crystal bulk, which is accompanied by their transformation. The nature of this transformation has been investigated by optical spectroscopy and confocal scanning microscopy. It is shown that, under the recording conditions we used, the degree of center aggregation increases in both minima and maxima of the interference field in which the recording performed. The enhanced aggregation in field minima is caused by the increase in the concentration color centers, while the additional aggregation in maxima is determined by the specific conditions of hologram recording: the wavelength and power density of recording radiation and the crystal temperature.
