Paper Abstract

Conventional optics normally includes only two types of elements: refractive and reflective. Holographic optics encompasses a third type of element; one whose properties are diffractive in nature. The focus of this paper is to outline the properties of a general computer-based analysis and design tool that is directed to holographic optics. This tool is called the Holographic Optics-Analysis and Design (HOAD) program. The program has been designed to be both user oriented and flexible. Four sections are covered in the paper. They are directed to-wards (1) the operating system (MTS) used to support the HOAD program, (2) the hologram ray tracing programs which form the basis of the program, (3) a general discussion of the HOAD program, and (4) an outline of the techniques of using HOAD. The last section of the paper is directed towards an assessment of where HOAD presently stands and the direction it is going.
