Abstract

A coupled wave model for two multiplexed reflection holograms recorded in a volume material is presented. Both simultaneously and sequentially formed gratings are evaluated. The effects of a strong intermodulation grating, the thickness change with emulsion processing, and the construction geometry on the desired diffraction orders are investigated over a range of reconstruction angles. The model results are compared with experimental data from holograms formed in bleached photographic emulsions.
