Paper Abstract

A computer program has been written which permits us to do aberration calculations on holographic optical elements based on ray tracing. In this article we first examine the diffraction phenomena which leads to a simple method for defining light ray deviation. Because most optical systems with holographic optical elements have no circular symmetry it was necessary to give appropriated definitions for the Seidel-aberrations. The structure of the computer program is given and a practical example is worked out.
