Paper Abstract

A device that provides a very convenient facility for the manufacture of holographic diffraction gratings is described . The system employs single mode polarization maintaining optical fibers and a simple optomechanical design to permit great flexibility in grating manufacture. The intended application of these gratings is diffraction moire interferometry. A variety of gratings ranging from less than 100 to more than 2000 l/mm can be made with minimal time required for changing between grating frequencies. Furthermore, the rational design of the device permits one to easily generate more complex gratings, including crossed gratings, gratings having two or more superimposed groove spatial frequencies, or gratings having other unusual features such as induced aberrations.
