A method is described in which arbitrary images are formed via Fresnel diffraction. In this method, a multifacet hologram is used to deflect small square areas of light from a given spatial location in the input plane to an arbitrarily prescribed location in the output plane, producing an image composed of small square patches of light. Five different variations of multifaceted holography are presented. Volume phase holograms are used in the deflection process resulting in nearly 100% efficiency.
