Abstract

A simple method of rotating an optical fiber bundle is presented to apply the random-pattern referencing scheme to hologram multiplexing. In the theoretical study, a dependence of the diffraction efficiency on the number of spatial frequencies in the reference pattern is estimated with the Bragg diffraction theory. In the experiment, hologram multiplexing is performed in which 30 holograms are recorded in a LiNbO3 crystal and are read out by rotating a fiber bundle. The result shows that this simple approach enables us to perform the hologram multiplexing and also contributes to the building of a compact optical setup.
