Paper Abstract

The design and fabrication of a wide field-of-view (FOV) holographic lens for use in a laser communication receiver are described. The holographic lens was designed to image incoming laser radiation at 850 nm onto a solid state detector array over a FOV of ±22.5 x ±16 deg (±26.7 deg in the diagonal direction). Experimental results obtained with the holographic wide FOV laser receiver are presented. The location of the focused spot can be determined by interpolation to subpixel accuracy, providing the laser receiver with an angular resolution better than 1.5 mrad.
