Paper Abstract

The realization of lasers emitting at very high peak powers mostly include performant diffractive optical elements with specific dispersive properties and high efficiency. In particular, this arises for the generation of ultrashort femtosecond pulses where technics of pulse stretching and compression are now commonly used. It thus results in a demand of high efficiency diffraction grating producing both high quality wavefronts and high threshold for laser damage. The main objective of this paper is to highlight new technologies of diffractive grating for ultrashort pulse lasers using phase volume holography in photosensitive materials. Preliminary experimental results concerning the laser damage threshold will be presented both for dichromated gelatin and photopolymer materials.
