Abstract: The development of a theoretical model of the processes present during the formation of a holographic grating in photopolymer materials is crucial in enabling further development of holographic applications. To achieve this, it is necessary to understand the photochemical and photophysical processes involved and to isolate their effects, enabling each to be modeled accurately. While photopolymer materials are practical materials for use as holographic recording media, understanding the recording mechanisms will allow their limitations for certain processes to be overcome. In this paper we report generalizations of the nonlocal polymer driven diffusion (NPDD) model to include the effects of photosensitive dye absorption and the inhibition effects.
