Holographic Optical Elements (HOEs) are being currently used in an increasing number of applications as components of optical systems, although their use is still relatively rare. HOEs are invaluable for selected optical system applications, inappropriate for most, and potentially useful for others. The most successful applications use one or more of the HOEs' unique attributes to obtain optical system performance not possible with conventional optical elements alone. The purpose of this paper is to summarize the basic concepts involved in the use of HOEs in optical systems, to present several system examples illustrating successful applications of HOEs, and to highlight HOE attributes which are crucial to overall optical system performance.
