Abstract

It has been demonstrated previously that a thin phase hologram, recorded in a weak reference condition, is capable of inverting a complex field. Using a computer simulation of the properties of a thin phase hologram, we find the operating conditions and dynamic range for wave-front inversion. The conclusions of the simulation are used for designing an experiment to invert a circulant matrix and the results of the experiment well support the analysis.
