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.
