Paper Abstract

We introduce a new method of finding periodic phase relief structures, which produce the desired diffraction pattern with high light efficiency (75% to 96%) and low noise (<±1%). Use is made of explicit equations for the angular spectrum of the field immediately behind such structures and of different stochastic nonlinear optimization methods.
