Direct surface relief recording in amorphous chalcogenide semiconductors like As20Se80 and other compositions from As(Ge)-S(Se) systems essentially depends on the chemical composition, technology, and the recording conditions, resulting discrepancies in the results and interpretations. We have developed a method of direct comparison of the relief height and form in a combined thin film samples made of the reference and investigated compositions, as well as simple way of determining the efficiency of mass transport at surface relief recording. Selection of the a-Se as reference layer enables consideration of the possible role of composition, temperature, polarization in the recording process for any other chalcogenide or other material, which possess similar relief recording effects.
