Improvement of holographic recording property of a Ce : KNSBN crystal by the moving grating technique
Abstract:The moving grating technique is applied to improve the holographic recording property of the Ce : KNSBN crystal. In the case of extraordinarily polarized recording, the diffraction efficiency at large fringe modulations is enhanced by a factor of up to 35% at the optimum fringe velocity and the fringe modulation dynamic range is improved from m = 0.2 to m = 0.6. In the case of ordinarily polarized recording, a linear holographic reconstruction in the range of m ≤ 0.8 can be achieved by the moving grating at a fringe velocity of 9.6 nm/s. These results are significant in holography where a grey-level object needs to be recorded and reconstructed with high fidelity.
