3 June 2002 Analysis of the properties of polarization holographic diffraction gratings
Author Affiliations +
A numerical method is developed to investigate the properties of polarization diffraction gratings. The diffraction efficiency and polarization state of the diffraction orders are investigated in 3 main cases - when recording with two circularly polarized waves; when recording with two linear polarizations and in the general case - two orthogonal elliptical polarizations. The linear and circular anisotropy of the recording media are taken into consideration. The result in particular cases known from the practice or where analytical expressions have been reported, are in agreement with the model predictions.
