Abstract

We report the fabrication of large-area holographic diffraction gratings on a curved surface from transferred photopolymer films by introducing a water-soluble interlayer. The holographic gratings on a curved surface have a diffraction efficiency of 63%, which is 80% of the recorded holographic film on a flat surface. By transferring a recorded holographic grating to a flat substrate, we obtained rainbow holographic gratings under white light illumination. This can be explained by the deformation of the holographic gratings. Our result provides a low-cost method for fabricating diffraction optical elements on a curved surface for optical systems.
