The present paper deals with new results ont he development of a holographic nonspatial filter to be used for laser beam clean up. An analysis of thick holographic materials suitable for recording of such elements is carried out. The experimental setups for hologram recording and evaluation are described. The results on measurements of angular selectivity contour of such holographic filters are presented.© (1995) COPYRIGHT SPIE--The International Society for Optical Engineering.
