A volume holographic imaging system maps the spectral-spatial, four-dimensional data set to a two-dimensional image array, allowing simultaneous imaging of multiple projections of the spatial and spectral content from different depths within biological tissue samples. The volume holographic imaging system uses dispersion to increase the lateral field of view. This results in spectral performance characteristics that are unique to volume holographic imaging systems. We review the principle of operation of the volume holographic imaging system and aberrations due to the dispersive nature of a volume hologram. We report our experimental results of spectral performance present in a volume holographic imaging system.
