Paper Abstract

We present experiments on optical elements for metastable helium atoms. Lenses and beam splitters have been demonstrated both by diffraction from freestanding microstructures in gold foils and by passage through a standing light wave with a large period. The optical properties and the quality of the different elements are compared and discussed.
