Paper Abstract

A method for designing and fabricating optical systems based on planar holographic optics is presented. The planar optical system is usually composed of two (or more) holographic optical elements which are fabricated onto the same substrate. This paper compares and contrasts the two principal fabrication methods of holographic elements as Bragg volume holograms or as surface relief gratings. Various examples of planar holographic optical systems are presented, and their advantages over regular optical systems are illustrated.
