Abstract
Holographic image formation in photorefractive crystals with use of a complex object wave front is studied both theoretically and experiment ally. It is shown that the optimal conditions for holographic recordin g of a complex image differ from those required when a plane wave fron t is used as an object beam. Experimental measurements of the hologram 's diffraction efficiency and the optical noise dependencies on the re cording-beam polarization and intensity ratio are in good agreement wi th theory. An experimental approach designed to find the optimal confi guration of optical elements in a holographic interferometer with a ph otorefractive crystal is presented.
