We experimentally optimize double-ion-exchange process parameters to achieve a designed phase modulation for a wave front passing through a computer-generated waveguide hologram and numerically analyze the effects of fabrication errors. We also demonstrate a gradient-thickness waveguide hologram for⅛ beam splitting.
