Paper Abstract

Some initial research results are reported toward developing holographic optical elements for use as beam corrector-collimators for diode laser arrays in an inter-satellite data link. Holograms have been made in 649F emulsions with 633 nm radiation from a He-Ne laser under conditions which simulate a hologram made in an IR-sensitive emulsion with a diode laser. Such holograms have been copied into dichromated gelatin emulsions with 488 nm radiation from an Ar + laser. The copies have shown up to 94% efficiency when reconstructed as optical elements at 633 nm. Some difficulties in obtaining efficient holograms that do not introduce significant wave-front aberrations are discussed and possible solutions described.
