There is a program objective to systematically evaluate photosensitive recording materials that can be used in holographic and other coherent optical systems. In association with this, a detailed literature search was undertaken in which considerable information was obtained and compiled in this report. An objective of this report is to describe aspects of the recording materials in a way that will aid in their future development and use in holography. Over 100 references were reviewed that treat electrostatic imaging materials, photoresists, hardened dichromated gelatin, photopolymers, photochromic materials, and bleached silver halide materials. Subcategories include Scott Graphics TEP film photoplastic film diazos, diazo-oxides and azides Shipleys AZ 1350 positive photoresists Hughes-NRC, DuPont and Bell Laboratories photopolymers photochromic lithium niobate and different halide bleaches for silver halide bleached holograms. The report compares a number of the characteristics of the different classes of holographic recording materials.
