Paper Abstract

Optical components in which light is redirected by diffraction at a periodic structure may be made by recording fringe patterns generated by the interference of coherent beams of light. Such components can offer significant advantages in terms of cost, weight and ease of manufacture. This paper describes some of the components that can be made in this way and considers the mechanical and optical properties of the materials used to make them.
