A study of the optimization and the characteristics of a dry film photopolymerizable recording material is presented. The effects of intensity, the thickness, and the variation of the concentration of each component have been studied. Diffraction efficiencies of 80%, with energetic sensitivities of 40 mJ/cm2, have been obtained in photosensitive films of a 35-μm thickness with a spatial frequency of 1000 lines/mm.
