The resulting analytic expressions for the monomer and polymer concentrations have been derived and their ranges of validity tested in comparison with the more accurate numerical four-harmonic case. We used these analytic expressions to carry out a study of experimental results presented in the literature over a 30-year period. Automatic ﬁtting of the data with these formulas allows material parameters, including the nonlocal chain-length variance σ, to be estimated. In this way, (i) a quantitative comparison of different materials can be made, and (ii) a standard form of experimental result presentation is proposed to facilitate such a procedure.||Funding Details:||Not applicable||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Optical Society of America||Copyright (published version):||2002 Optical Society of America||Keywords:||Optical storage materials;Polymers||Subject LCSH:||Photopolymers
