Using interferometers adjusted for extended source operation, it is shown that holographic optical elements (HOEs) can be constructed with any designed conjugate focal planes. Noise and diffraction efficiency measurements show that the reduced coherence method can yield HOEs of high diffraction efficiency and good SNR.
