Recording and reconstruction of the polarization state of the object beam is achieved by using dyed red plastic as a holographic material. Holographic characteristics are presented of dyed red plastic involving beam powers ranging between 3 and 120 mW/cm2 and exposure times in the order of minutes. It is also shown that the resulting modulation becomes photostationary under continuous exposure.
