The existing technology for detecting chemical species is based on spectral decomposition of light from a multispecies sample. This approach is limited because of line overlapping from different species and is getting increasingly unreliable when the number of species is large. We propose a holographic species analyzer, which decomposes an input in terms of a prespecified set of species. The innovation is to replace a diffraction grating with a holographic memory element designed to recognize the whole light patterns of different species and generate in an output plane a position sensitive map of species present. The holographic element can be optically or computer generated. The proposed technology is shown using computer models to be both highly wavelength and position sensitive.
