Abstract

A model describing the angular selectivity of noise gratings in volume holographic recording materials is presented. The noise grating is treated as an ensemble of superimposed, statistically distributed planar gratings. Rigorous coupled-wave analysis is used to treat reconstruction with various polarization states. The model accounts for material properties such as thickness change, absorption, and the angular distribution of scattered light within the recording medium. Results show good agreement with noise gratings that are experimentally formed in a thick cationic ring-opening photopolymer material.
