Monomer diffusion in an organic-inorganic nanocomposite films during the holographic recording was investigated. The photopolymer films with low shrinkage were prepared by dispersing an aromatic methacrylic monomer and a photo-initiator in organic-inorganic hybrid sol-gel matrices. The shrinkage of the photopolymer film and the diffusion of monomers during the holographic recording could be controlled by optimizing the content of an organically modified silica precursor (ORMOSIL) in the sol-gel matrices. The photopolymer film showed high diffraction efficiency (>90%) under an optimized condition. Photo-sensitivity, angular selectivity and application potential for holographic data storage and optical application will be discussed.
