Volume polarization holographic recording in phenanthrenequinone-doped poly (methyl methacrylate) photo polymer is obtained. Photoinduced birefringence in a 2 mm thick sample is measured by a phase-modulated ellipsometry. The birefringence induced in this material by linearly polarized beam at 514 nm reaches 1.2 × 10 5 . In addition, ability for recording volume polarization grating using two different polarization configurations is demonstrated and compared. The experimental results show that the diffraction efficiency of the hologram reaches to 40 % by using two orthogonal circularly polarized beams.
