We propose a novel imaging structure based on a volume holographic optical element that allows one-dimensional optical imaging through a specific Bragg window. The lateral magnification is shown to be linear and negative. Lateral magnifications of 2.5, 5, and 10 of the imaging element are demonstrated theoretically and experimentally.
