Abstract

This work presents a technique for in situ measurement of light-induced refractive index gratings in epoxy resin using digital holographic microscopy (DHM). The reconstructed phase image derived from a digital hologram can exhibit the grating structure and refractive index profile of an epoxy resin hologram. Reconstruction properties of finite aperture effect in the DHM system are considered and analyzed theoretically. Due to the high spatial frequency components collected by the objective lens, the DHM system can measure fine grating structures and numerically determine the reconstructed images in increased detail. Grating formation and dynamic behavior during the light-induced holographic process can be demonstrated experimentally and characterized using the proposed scheme. Compared with an optical holographic readout, the proposed technique facilitates direct observation and substantial understanding of the holographic recording mechanism in a microscopic view.
