Paper Abstract

In this work we propose a design procedure for producing an optical interconnection lens as a computer originated hologram. New methods for analyzing and designing holographic optical elements are developed. These are mainly based on the introduction of Taylor series expansion to solving the equations of holographic elements. Specifically, the Taylor expansion is exploited to solve the Bragg conditions after they are reformulated as a nonlinear partial differential equation. The expansion is also used for analyzing the propagation of a given wavefront in an optical system that can be comprised of several holographic and conventional elements. According to computer simulations, the spot size, calculated in accordance with geometrical optics, is several orders of magnitude less than the diffraction limited size, and the diffraction efficiency degradation is less than 0.01%.
