Abstract: We show experimentally that the metallic salt, FeCl3, at different concentrations, provides photosensitivity and conductivity characteristics with poly(vinyl alcohol) material. The holographic recording in this photosensitive material was made in real time. The effect of applied voltage on holographic diffraction gratings in the recording process and the changes in their diffraction efficiency, depending on their composition, are shown. In addition, we describe the photo-mechanism, physicochemical processes, and water condensations involved in changes of the formation of images due to applied voltage. The results suggest that polymers doped with metallic salts may have potential as inexpensive photosensitive materials that are easy to work under normal laboratory condition.
