Paper Abstract

Phase-only Fourier gratings have been used as beam combiners and beam splitters for applications including imaging [1-3], coherent communications [4,5], and optical computing [6-12]. The design of phase-only Fourier gratings, also referred to as Dammann gratings and as kinoforms, is reviewed in this work. The purpose of the review is to distinguish between the different representations presented for such gratings, the different philosophies used in the design, and the different algorithms used to perform the design [10-16].
