We investigated the contribution of the absorption and phase gratings to the total diffraction efficiency of volume holographic gratings written in glass-like polymer recording materials based on poly(methyl methacrylate) and its thermostable derivative (copolymer with acrylic acid) with distributed phenanthrenequinone. The typical maximal diffraction efficiency was 0.5%–2.0% for the absorption grating and 22–32% for the phase grating. The modulation of the absorption coefficient varied between 10cm-1 and 100cm-1 and the modulation of the refractive index was about 10-4-10-3.
