Head-Up Displays (HUDs) utilizing holographic combiner elements can suffer from poor display brightness uniformity across the head motion volume or field of view. The brightness non-uniformity is due to angle differences between the construction and the enduse orreconstruction geometries. This problem is especially acute when holographic combinerelements are positioned relatively close to the pilot's design eye location, when large head motion volumes are desired, and when narrow-band phosphors (e.g. P-53) are used. This paper presents a hologram design approach that maximizes the HUD combiner phosphor reflectivity, the transmissivity through the combiners, and the display brightness uniformity. This technique can be applied to HUDs using dual combiners or wide field-of-view combiners.
