Abstract

A new technological approach makes fabrication of relief computer-generated focusing elements for IR radiation by use of a dry photopolymer recording material possible. The formation of a relief structure by self-development takes place in the dark, subsequent to the holographic illumination, without wet processing. Consequently these diffractive elements exhibit low surface scattering. The formation of a surface wave of the monomer along the light–darkness boundary is observed for the first time to our knowledge and confirms the previously proposed thermodynamic model of the mechanism of the hologram formation in photopolymerizable layers. Dye-sensitized polymerization of acrylamide is found to produce nonlinearity of the relief recording. At least partial compensation of this nonlinearity is attained by the introduction of appropriate corrections into the computer-generated amplitude function. A diffraction efficiency of ~ 55% is obtained for CO2 laser radiation (λ = 10.6 μm).
