Development of the photorefractive (PR) polymer devices combining the exceptional properties, such as large size, efficient recording, erasing capability, and persistent storage of holograms are highly satisfying the requirements to achieve updatable 3-D holographic displays with memory. Technical growth aspects of holography has already reflected successful implementations in static imaging, recording media used are write once, read-many types of the materials. The detailed study on the development comprises the main difference between the PR-polymer-based dynamic 3-D display and systems based on opto-electronic that is memory capability of the PR polymers. Dynamic of semi-dynamic (refreshable) materials have significantly improved the performance and extended the uses of holographic systems, especially enhanced the capabilities for 3-D displays. Holograms in the PR based 3-D displays show visibility within 45° viewing zone and persists for several hours without refreshing.
