Abstract

The focal conditions for diffraction grating systems that employ holographic and varied line-space gratings are shown to be formally identical. An example is given in which the recording geometry of a holographic grating is derived that provides the same imaging (to lowest order) as a ruled grating whose grooves, while straight and parallel, vary in spacing across the surface of the grating.
