Paper Abstract

We have derived an analytic procedure for recording a flat, volume phase, transmission holographic optical element at a wavelength different from that at which it is to be used. The procedure guarantees that the resulting element will have diffraction limited aberration performance. Furthermore, it guarantees, to a first order, that the Bragg condition for high diffraction efficiency will be satisfied. The technique gives simple analytic expressions for the required object and reference construction beam phases at the element. In general, the object and reference construction beams must be realized using computer generated holograms in conjunction with conventional refractive or reflective optics.
