Holograms were formed on a silver halide photothermographic material without carrying out wet treatment. Amplitude holograms whose gratings consist of rows of developed silver grains were formed, and the maximum diffraction efficiency of the gratings was almost 1.5%. When the amplitude holograms were bleached using bromine gas, they were converted to phase holograms, and the diffraction efficiency increased to a maximum of 6%. All areas turned yellow in color because of the formation of silver bromide. The mechanism of formation of gratings after bleaching has not yet been established. The authors propose that stripes of silver bromide, developer, toner, or other components may be formed by thermal development and subsequent bleaching. These stripes are transparent but have different diffraction indices, and this leads to the formation of gratings.

More about this publication?
  • The Journal of Imaging Science and Technology (JIST) is dedicated to the advancement of imaging science knowledge, the practical applications of such knowledge, and how imaging science relates to other fields of study. The pages of this journal are open to reports of new theoretical or experimental results, and to comprehensive reviews. Only original manuscripts that have not been previously published, nor currently submitted for publication elsewhere, should be submitted.

    IS&T's JIST-first publication option allows authors wishing to present their work at conferences, but have a journal citation for their paper, to submit a paper to JIST that follows the same rigorous peer-review vetting and publication process as traditional JIST articles, but with the benefit of a condensed time-to-publication time frame and guaranteed conference presentation slot.

    Please note: For purposes of its Digital Library content, IS&T defines Open Access as papers that will be downloadable in their entirety for free in perpetuity. Copyright restrictions on papers vary; see individual paper for details.
