Paper Abstract

The optical properties of holographic kinoforms are described. It is shown that paraxial designs are not adequate for f-numbers less than approximately F/10. A non-paraxial design is introduced which retains the high diffraction efficiency of the paraxial designs, yet also produces a non-aberrated diffracted wavefront for the design wavelength. Aberration calculations and computer calculations, based on the Huygens-Fresnel principle, of the point spread functions for these elements show the necessity of using the non-paraxial design.
