Analyses of prism anamorphic optical systems with single and multiple prisms in plane and spherical wave illumination geometries are presented. A theoretical evaluation and experimental demonstration of a new technique for recording holographic anamorphic elements by using prism anamorphic optical systems is discussed. It is seen that this technique offers the advantage of generating elements with low f/number. Another advantage of this recording is the easy generation of elements with different anamorphic factors by using a single configuration.
