Abstract

We report erasable holographic recording with a resolution of at least 2500 lines/mm on unoriented films of side-chain liquid-crystalline polyesters. Recording energies of approximately 1 J/cm2 have been used. We have obtained a diffraction efficiency of approximately 30% with polarization recording of holograms. The holograms can be erased by heating them to approximately 80°C for approximately 2 min and are available for rerecording.
