Paper Abstract

In this paper, a comprehensive ray-tracing model for simulating volume holographic gratings is programmed and demonstrated in OpticStudio. The model integrates physical properties of the hologram, such as diffraction direction and efficiency based on incident rays’ direction and polarization state, into the standard ray-tracing model. The model also accounts for hologram emulsion shrinkage and refractive index shift. With integration of these physical effects, advanced modeling tools like image simulation and optimization become available and are demonstrated with a case study of a seethrough head-mounted display.
