The feasibility of using inhomogeneous recording media in holography is examined. Partial-wave theory is used to examine one- and two-dimensional cases of inhomogeneous media. The properties of such media are analyzed, including energy characteristics; attention is given to dispersive and nondispersive, conducting and nonconducting, and homogeneous and inhomogeneous media. A method for solving the wave equation for plane-stratified and smoothly inhomogeneous media is presented with application to the recording and reconstruction of holograms.
