New photopolymers were designed and prepared using the thermoplastic and photoreactive binders. Poly (vinylacetate-co-vinylalcohol) was used as a thermoplastic polymer binder and 3-isopropenyl-α, α-dimethylbenzyl isocyanate (m-TMI) was tethered to the side chain of the above polymer. The holographic gratings were successfully fabricated in these photopolymer film samples by conventional optical interference method. The dynamic behaviors of the grating formation were studied with the change of exposure intensity. The effect of photoreaction between the polymer binder and the newly-formed polymer in the constructive region on the diffraction behavior and its stability was also investigated.
