Abstract

Rainbow holographic image resolution, primary aberrations, and bandwidth requirements are presented. The results obtained for the rainbow holographic process are rather general, for which the conventional holographic image resolution, aberrations, and bandwidth requirements, can be derived. The conditions for the elimination of the five primary rainbow holographic aberrations are also given. These conditions may be useful for the application of obtaining a high-quality rainbow hologram image. In terms of bandwidth requirements, we have shown that the bandwidth requirement for a rainbow holographic construction is usually several orders lower than that of a conventional holographic process. Therefore, a lower-resolution recording medium can generally be used for most of the rainbow holographic constructions.
