Arrangements are described for the recording of volume holograms with two sections that, when stacked together, work as uniaxial centered lenses and allow one to solve the problem of angular selectivity in the imaging of wide objects. The performance of such systems is examined qualitatively, and suggestions aimed at improving these designs are proposed.
