In this paper, we present an achievable gradient refractive index in
bi-continuous holographic structures that are formed through five-beam
interference. We further present a theoretic approach for the
realization of gradient index devices by engineering the phases of the
interfering beams with a pixelated spatial light modulator. As an
example, the design concept of a gradient index Luneburg lens is
verified through full-wave electromagnetic simulations. These five beams
with desired phases can be generated through programming gray level
super-cells in a diffractive spatial light modulator. As a
proof-of-concept, gradient index structures are demonstrated using
synthesized and gradient phase patterns displayed in the spatial light
modulator. (C) 2013 AIP Publishing LLC.
