In this paper, we present our investigations on polarization holographic recording in 9, 10- phenanthrenequinone-doped poly (methyl methacrylate) photopolymer. We demonstrate that a polarization grating can be recorded in such material using two orthogonal polarization beams. The experimental results show that the diffraction efficiency of the hologram reaches to ~40 %, and the dynamic range of material (M#) reaches to 1.82 by using two orthogonal circularly-polarized beams.
