Abstract

A new holographic implementation of a sampling technique permits, in principle, a straightforward representation of 2-D space-variant optical systems. The set of sample transfer functions required for the representation is recorded on a single holographic plate by utilizing phase coded reference beams. Because this approach does not depend on volume effects in the recording medium in an essential way, the holograms can be produced digitally, as well as optically. Basic concepts and preliminary experimental investigations related to this approach are presented and discussed.
