Abstract
For some years, theoretical models have been worked out to describe the interaction between electromagnetic waves and a thick dielectric grating. Those models were developed for sinusoidal phase gratings illuminated with a plane wavefront. A method is proposed here to calculate the diffraction efficiencies of spherical and cylindrical holographic lenses and of spherical to cylindrical wavefront converters. Those calculations are based on the coupled wave theory of Kogelnik and on the work of Nishihara.
