Abstract

Partial wave analysis is used to obtain analytical expressions for the diffraction efficiencies of evanescent-wave holograms for TM polarization. It is shown that the diffraction efficiency for the evanescent-wave hologram is relatively lower for TM than for TE polarized illumination. Furthermore, the curves of diffraction efficiency as a function of the reconstruction angles have dips that are not observed in the TE case.
