Abstract

A method for the evaluation of images reconstructed from holograms recorded in thermoplastic materials is reported. The method is based on the use of the experimental modulation transfer function and nonlinear holographic characteristics of the recording material. Calculations have been carried out for high-numerical-aperture holograms of a five-element Ronchi ruling. The quality of the reconstructed image as a function of the recording parameters has been computed. The model predicts that it is possible to optimize holographic recording in these materials.
