Relief holograms are obtained on Agfa 8E56HD holographic emulsions by a Russian chemical-processing technique that is developed for their PE-2 holographic emulsion. We have shown that the three-dimensional surface profiles can easily be visualized by applying atomic force microscopy to measurement of the relief depth and relief spacing on holographic emulsions. The relief depth and thus diffraction efficiency decreases with increasing exposure time.
