Abstract

A technique is presented for recording Fresnel holograms with a broad spectral bandwidth light source. The conditions for obtaining an achromatic Fresnel diffraction pattern at the hologram plane are derived, and aberrations resulting from approximate compensation are discussed. Three experimental compensating systems are presented.
