Noise gratings in diffuse-object holograms recorded as volume phase holograms in bleached silver halide emulsion are experimentally analyzed. Measurements of the diffraction efficiency and the noise of the holograms are taken. The experimental results obtained show that there is a drop not only in the diffraction efficiency but also in the noise that is due to the presence of noise gratings.
