Abstract

Narrow-bandwidth holographic reflection filters are demonstrated that use volume gratings in 100-μm-thick photopolymer films. A full width at half-maximum of 0.09 nm can be achieved with ~35% peak reflectance near the 900-nm region. Detailed fabrication procedures and filter performances are described.
