Paper Abstract

In this paper we describe the replication processes of DOE carried out at the Diffractive Optics Laboratory/UNICAMP for replicating DOE. In particular we present the results obtained in the replication by injection molding of microlens array, diffraction gratings and polarizing elements. The measurements of the geometric dimensions of the DOE masters, the nickel shims and the replicated structures were accomplished by perfilometry, AFM and SEM microscopy. The optical properties of both the DOE masters and their replicas were evaluated by measuring of the diffraction efficiency as a function of the incident wavelength, for orthogonal polarizations.
