Surface-relief structures are optically induced by visible laser exposure in the self-developing photopolymers. We describe the processes caused a relief formation, fabricating technologies, analyze the influence of recording process parameters (recording intensity, grating period, the value of adhesion between polymer film and substrate) and present the diffusive-polymerization theory to modeling a surface relief formation in photopolymers. With a holographic method the fan-out element that generates 18 and 25 beams of almost equal intensity is experimentally realized.

Keywords: Self-developing photopolymers; relief gratings; the diffusive-polymerization theory
