In the manufacture of holographic gratings using coherent light there is an associated problem of optical noise, the conventional remedies for which involve various restrictions. In this work a moving point source is adopted and analysis indicates that if the path is a circle several of these restrictions are removed. The scheme is implemented and the results are highly satisfactory with high-efficiency gratings being produced at frequencies up to 2400 lines/mm, in sizes up to 65 mm square. Significant operational advantages also accrue in relation to alignment procedures and light utilization.
