Abstract

The parameters of several stratified volume holographic gratings are optimized in order to obtain high diffraction efficiency beam spliters. Two-, three-, five-, seven-, and nine-beam fan-outs are theoretically studied and compared with what has been achieved by other means. With a simple optical setup, a fan-out element that generates seven beams of equal intensity is experimentally realized and a comparison with theory is made.
