A novel volume holographic optical element serving as an atypical mirror with a lateral magnification of 1 in both the horizontal and the vertical directions is proposed. Optical imaging is performed by point-to-point imaging with local cross talk, which prevents ghost diffraction spots from the holographic element of multiple gratings.
