Two new copolymers based on methylmethacrylate (MMA) with methacrylamide (MAA) and methacrylic acid (MA) containing distributed phenanthrenequinone (PQ) molecules are fabricated for the purpose of optical recording by generating holographic diffractive structures under argon laser illumination. Chemical conditions for the formation of holograms are discussed and confirmed by the spectral characteristics of the material. Thermal and adhesive properties were improved with the aim of expanding the range of polymer application and generating of diffractive elements with long term stability and high optical quality.
