Abstract

A method for designing and recording transmission holographic lenses, having low aberrations and high diffraction efficiencies, in the presence of a recording–readout wavelength shift, is presented. The method is based on a recursive design technique, in which the final hologram is recorded with complex wave fronts that are derived from intermediate holograms. The design is illustrated for a lens with an f-number of 2.5 and a large offset angle, recorded at 488 nm and read out at 633 nm. A nearly diffraction-limited spot size and an efficiency of >80% are measured.
