We report a new photochromic composite polymer that was evaluated in conjunction with its potential applications for optical holographic recording in the whole visible spectral range. It consists of poly-N-epoxypropylcarbazole (PEPC) polymeric matrix with a nitro-brome-substituted spiropyran (BNSP) photochromic dye. The PEPC+BNSP films can be considered as negative photochromic recording media. They are colored in the initial state and bleached upon irradiation within the whole visible spectra. When we placed the bleached samples to the darkness, they slowly revert to the colored form. The real-time holographic recording procedure in PEPC+BNSP films was studied.
