Abstract

Although holographic magnification may appear to increase greatly the versatility of holographic recording and retrieval systems, nevertheless, holographic lens aberrations often prevent the recording of Fourier-transform holograms directly from small transparencies and production of legible, page-size images by mere alteration of the convergence of the reference beam during reconstruction. The magnitudes of these aberrations are calculated for several different Fourier-transform-recording geometries; the optimum geometries are delineated. The most important aberrations that occur with the Fourier-transform method of holographic storage are astigmatism and curvature of field.
