Holographic gratings in two kinds of photopolymers (PPs) were fabricated by optical interference method. Polyvinylalcohol (PVA) and polyvinylacetate (PVAc) were employed as polymer binders and photopolymerization of acrylamide (AA) was confirmed using infrared spectroscopy. Dynamic behavior of the diffraction efficiency was monitored and its temporal stability at room temperature was also observed. Additionally, the temperature dependence of these gratings was investigated in two PPs. The surface topographical change of the photopolymer layer was observed by atomic force microscope (AFM).
