Paper Abstract

In this paper we present and discuss new results concerning the dependence of the diffraction efficiency of holographic gratings on the state of polarization of the reconstruction wave. The results were obtained during the investigation of polarizing beam splitters manufactured in dichromated gelatin. The aim of this investigation was to fabricate holographic gratings of the transmissive and reflective types, which diffract the component polarized perpendicularly to the plane of incidence, whereas the parallel component will pass the hologram unaffected. Experimentally determined diffraction efficiencies for both types gratings are presented and discussed. The results are compared with the predictions from Kogelnik's theory.
