Abstract

We present a coupled-wave-analysis-based treatment for a wave-front conversion problem between a Gaussian beam with a cylindrical phase and a plane wave for a two-dimensional on-axis geometry. A coupled-wave approach to the multiple-scattering process in an inhomogeneous dielectric medium offers a clear physically interpretable description of the diffraction phenomena in volume media as well as the possibility of an intelligible mathematical treatment. An analytical integral solution for the amplitudes of the two modes of diffraction is submitted. High diffraction efficiency (≈1) and the deterioration of reconstruction fidelity are predicted. It is of interest to apply the model to the analysis and design of a monomode holographic fiber-to-fiber coupler, wave-front correctors, and holographic interconnection devices.
