Paper Abstract

Sinusoidal holographic gratings recorded in photoresist exhibit strong phase retardation and can be used as low cost quarterwave plates. It was found that the two most important fabrication parameters are, in order of importance, the spatial frequency and the modulation depth. It is not possible to achieve a sufficient phase retardation into photoresist with a single grating showing no rotation of the incident polarization, but the cascade configuration shows the required phase retardation without diffracted orders and is a good candidate for the fabrication of high quality quarterwave plates.
