Paper Abstract

A simple, single-element, holographic ally formed device for use as a multiplexer/demultiplexer in wave-length division multiplexing in optical fiber systems is described. The single holographic element performs all the required functions of collection, separation, and focusing. Experimental results for a thick dichromated gelatin HOE are described. Efficiencies of 70% over a bandwidth of 30% have been measured in the visible. Methods of extending the operation to the near IR are discussed.
