Abstract
The production of linear holographic gratings requires two plane waves. The generation of interference patterns by two point sources is a very simple process and results in noise-free diffraction gratings. However, the resulting pattern no longer consists of parallel straight lines and is best described by the geometry of conical sections. A set of such diffraction gratings with hyperbolic patterns have been used as components of a grating interferometer. When this interferometer is illuminated with a point source, under certain geometrical conditions, the interference pattern generated at the output of the interferometer consists of equally spaced, parallel straight lines. An analysis of this arrangement and experimental results is presented.
