abstract

In the last three decades several kinds of organic mixtures for holographic recording were developed in order to achieve a new class of DVD-like optical memories for high-density optical data storage. The holographic materials should satisfy the following requirements: high sensitivity to blue light, low losses, high spatial resolution and long term stability. To this aim we developed new organic photosensitive mixtures based on only three components. We recorded high spatial frequency reflection gratings up to 7400 lines/mm with blue laser light (405 nm) by using a conventional holographic setup. We obtained a macro grating diffraction efficiency up to 67%, refractive index modulation over 0.01, optical shrinkage < 2 % and overall losses ~5%. In order to characterize data-storage materials independently on the experimental conditions, the sensitivity has been evaluated through the S parameter which takes into account the diffraction efficiency, recording light intensity, exposure time and sample thickness. The amazing obtained values of S >105 cm/J evidences a very fast recording process with a very low writing intensity (less than 20 mW/cm2) corresponding to a recording energy density of few mJ/cm2. The performance of these materials have been also tested in the microholographic geometry.
