Abstract

This paper proposes a mirror-lens model that represents volume axial transmissive and reflective holographic elements in the form of a thin lens and a spherical mirror. Some consequences from the mirror-lens model are indicated that are independent in first approximation of the thickness of the holographic element. Formulas are obtained that make it possible to determine the optimum position of the conjugate object and image planes and the coordinates of the sources of the reference and object waves. The paper presents the calculated dependences of the positions of the sources of the reference and object spherical waves on the recording wavelength and the focal length of a volume holographic element with a working wavelength of 10μm.
