Abstract

The dynamics of the holographic recording in indium oxide (In2O3) thin films, grown by dc magnetron sputtering, using ultraviolet laser radiation at 325 nm, is investigated. Simultaneous measurements of the recording efficiency and electrical conductivity changes, under ambient conditions, prove that there is a strong relation between the two actions, and measurements of the recording efficiency with respect to the film conductivity history and temperature provide evidence for the presence of two coexisting processes in the recording regime. The reported results provide essential information on the mechanism and nature of holographic recording in this material.
