The principle of the photothermoplastic method of hologram recording and the general requirements for photothermoplastic holographic recording media based on photoconductive polymer films are considered. The holographic recording media obtained by the authors based on carbazolyl- and ferrocenyl-containing oligomers doped with respective squarillium or merocyanine dyes are discussed. Some examples of practical application of such media in holographic interferometry are demonstrated.
