Liquid crystal displays (LCDs) are widely used as spatial light modulators (SLMs) in many applications (optical signal processing, holographic data storage, diffractive optics...). In particular, as an alternative microoptics recording scheme we have explored the possibility to use a LCD to display the diffractive optical element (DOE) to be recorded onto a(More)
The exact expression for the maximum tension of a pendulum string is used to obtain a closed-form approximate expression for the solution of a simple pendulum in terms of elementary functions. This approximate solution has a rational harmonic expression and depends on an unknown function, which must be determined. This unknown function is expanded using the(More)
Photopolymers are optical recording materials appealing for many different applications such as holography, data storage, interconnectors, solar concentrations, or wave-guides fabrication. Recently the capacity of photopolymers to record diffractive optical elements (DOE’s) has been investigated. Different authors have reported proposes to record DOE like(More)
The holographic storage of information is based on the interference of two waves: the reference wave and the object wave, the latter is generated by using a spatial light modulator, and in the case of applications of data storage this corresponds to a binary pattern of one and zeros. The interference pattern is recorded in a photosensitive medium(More)
Different electromagnetic theories have been applied in order to understand the interaction of the electromagnetic radiation with diffraction gratings. Kogelnik’s Coupled Wave Theory, for instance, has been applied with success to describe the diffraction properties of sinusoidal volume gratings. Nonetheless the predictions of Kogelnik’s theory deviate from(More)
In this paper four different photopolymers are compared on the basis of their suitability for holographic data storage. The optical recording parameters of these photopolymers were directly determined using the zero spatial frequency limit. The behavior of cover plated and uncover plated material layers was analyzed. Once the main parameters were(More)
We use 4,4’ azo-bis-(4-cyanopentanoic acid) as chain transfer agent in a photopolymer with triethanolamine/yellowish eosin as initiator system. It is possible to work in a particular conditions to get a chain transfer effect minimizing the decomposition of 4,4’ azo-bis-(4-cyanopentanoic acid) by the sensitized dye. The improved photopolymer has a low(More)
