The effects of the substrate temperature (Ts) on the optical constants of as-deposited Se and SeGe thin films and on the holographic recording properties of these films were investigated. The substrate temperature held between 35°C and 50°C during thin film deposition was identified as an appropriate means to improve the optical recording properties of these films.
