Polymers as Mid-Infrared Holographic Recording Media
In this paper it is shown that thin polymethyl-methacrylate films and polycarbonate blocks can be used to record interference patterns having a spatial frequency of a few lines/mm. Light source used in the experiments was a CO2 laser which emits radiation with a wavelength of 10.6 μm. Diffraction efficiency behavior for red and infrared light is presented.
