Paper Abstract

The application of dichromated gelatin holographic transmission gratings to spectroscopy, spectral filtering, and ultrafast lasers is discussed. Volume holographic gratings provide advantages over conventional dispersing elements including higher diffraction efficiencies, simple alignments, and greater ease of handling. This paper identifies the design parameters used to define the basic grating and then expands to describe the considerations necessary when the grating is a volume holographic grating. A general description is provided of the holographic process used to produce the volume gratings identifying key process steps and concerns.
