Holographic grating formation in silver nanoparticle suspensions
Thermal gratings are recorded in silver nanoparticle suspensions by nanosecond pulsed holography. Initial transients in diffraction efficiency demonstrate competing effects in grating formation. The grating's final decay is consistent with the suspension's thermal conductivity.
