Holograms were recorded by 30 fs laser pulses in 20 μm film of dichromated gelatin on the polished quartz substrate and reconstructed in the waveguide mode. The geometric-optical regime of waveguide hologram reconstruction was obtained: the direction of the reconstructed beam was observed to be independent on the reconstructing wavelength within the hologram spectral selectivity band. We discuss the possibility of producing achromatic waveguide optical elements containing only a few periods.
