Abstract

We introduce a technique for recording volume holographic optical elements (vHOEs) designed for operation at a wavelength different from the recording wavelength. This technique relies on our holographic wave front printer, which employs two spatial light modulators for recording wave front generation. We present the procedure for computing the required recording wave fronts accurately and noniteratively from the desired vHOE optical transformation function. We exploit this technique for the fabrication of a converging lens vHOE with an operation wavelength of 915 nm at a recording wavelength of 515 nm. Finally, we demonstrate the holographic lens functionality directly in the infrared spectral region.
