Paper Abstract

A diffractive optical element has been fabricated using VLSI techniques for use in multi-channel infra-red optical systems. This diffractive micro-optic demonstrates the flexibility and resolution available with current lithographic techniques. The optical element has a diffraction efficiency of 47% and a noise floor of -30dB. As lithographic techniques continue to improve, diffractive optics will become available for systems operating throughout the visible spectrum.
