In this article, we report the experimental values of required exposure to obtain the maximum diffraction efficiencies in PFG-03C Slavich film on independent recordings and RGB multiplexed recordings. Also, color adjustments by modifying wavelength channels contribution on reflection diffraction gratings, and color composition changes on Denisyuk holograms observed by using different spectral compositions light sources were studied and presented.
