dc.description.abstract Techniques have previously been described for holographically representing space -variant systems . By spatially sampling the input plane and using phase mask diffusers to encode the multiple reference beams , one can sequentially record holograms exhibiting a minimal amount of crosstalk . Gold -coded binary phase masks have been shown to have good correlation properties with known cross -correlation bounds . This thesis describes a technique which generates phase masks using a laser scanner computer generated hologram (CGH ) writing f a c i l i t y at a wavelength of 4579A . Methods for determining the proper resist thickness to achieve the necessary 180 degree phase shift between adjacent cells in a mask include analyzing the data taken by an interference microscope and quantitative analysis of the dc component present in the Fourier spectrum of the mask . Comparisons of the effectiveness of the phase masks with that of ground -glass were obtained using two different tests . First , the phase masks were used in a space -variant processor , and the results of the multiplexed holograms were compared to those obtained earlier using a ground -glass diff user . Secondly , computer -generated holograms were made using the phase masks as diffusers and the results were compared with those previously obtained using amplitude masks . en_US
