Abstract

A highly precise rotational filter based on a volume-holographic optical element is proposed and demonstrated. We present a clear theoretical calculation of the rotation sensitivity of the volume-holographic filter used to sense the rotation of a spherical ground glass object. By introducing the longitudinal displacement of the scattering point across the sphere, the sensitivity of the filter is greatly improved to 350 times that of a general case for a planar ground glass.
