Partitioned-field uniaxial volume holographic lenses increase the image fields of holographic volume lenses that are limited by angular selectivity. The efficiency and aberrations of one of these systems consisting of two overlapping uniaxial noncentered lenses were reported previously [Appl. Opt. 38, 4011 (1999)]. In the present study we present theoretical and experimental extensions of these systems to three overlapping lenses, showing how the dynamic range of the recording material can cause an important decrease in efficiency when several gratings are superposed on the same plate.
