Abstract

Generally, a diffractive optical element/digital hologram is used as a component in a system. For a specific system output, an appropriate signal must be realized as a diffraction pattern. We present methods to determine such signals, whereby the characteristics of the system are considered. In particular, we calculate signals and corresponding digital amplitude holograms for the generation of a special binary data set in a holographic storage system and a special binary surface relief in a microlithographic production process.
