Abstract

The effect of aberrations in the recording beams of a holographic setup is discussed regarding the deterioration of properties of a reflecting volume Bragg grating. Imperfect recording beams result in a spatially varying grating vector, which causes broadening, asymmetry, and washed out side lobes in the reflection spectrum as well as a corresponding reduction in peak diffraction efficiency. These effects are more significant for gratings with narrower spectral widths.
