Zilux Photopolymer ...

Post by holomaker » Fri Apr 12, 2019 5:08 am

Here’s a test hologram I’ve made w Zilux photo polymer
Made using pL530 laser @75mw w 120 sec exposure.
Even though this film is slow, maybe slower than convestro, but an advantage of this film (so far), is its ability to allow light pass through.

Contact copy off a DCG H2, copy came out brighter than than the original.

Congratulations!
Very good result. The exposure is slow however, this is a thing to research. The most difficult thing is to achieve a high efficient master, maybe a DCG, SHSG or even on a pixelated digital image, the last one is the ideal for contact copy, but is very, very rare.

Curious what the sensitivity is like at 488nm vs 530nm, if you get a chance to test.

I want to ask what their pricing is like, but I see they require you to sign an NDA before even beginning product availability discussions :(

I think that was in the past, no waiver signed here!

Shortly I’ll be testing red and then blue ...

As I told Harlan, I think the initial clarity of the film make this good for doing reflection proximity copies..

here’s a video made by Zilux

In this video they were using green sensitive only film (red safe light), With a full color film I would use the amber leds ...

I have a few standard questions on this material since no performance specifications are shown on their website.
Did you measure the growth in diffraction efficiency during recording to assess the rate of development of refractive index modulation ?
Did you measure the shift in the reconstruction angle to assess the degree of shrinkage during recording ?
What was the mW/cm2 value at the recording plane during recording ?
Did you measure the final achieved diffraction efficiency ?
Did you try to multiplex additional images ?
What is the thickness of the recording material ?
Did you have to post expose the recorded hologram to stabilize the image, such as with a strobe flash lamp ?
