Full text of article: Russian language.


We discuss the computation of parameters of a diffractive beam splitter that uses a diffractive optical element synthesized in a bichromated gelatine to split a white incident laser beam into three different-wavelength beams.

bichromated gelatine, color separators, beam splitters, volume gratings.
