Paper Abstract

In order to fabricate orthogonal crossed gratings, we propose an interference fringe based alignment technique to adjust the angle between the two Lloyd’s mirrors to be 90° in the dual Lloyd’s mirror interferometer. An exposed crossed grating is put back to the exposure system and rotated about 90° around its normal direction. By observing the fringe spacing of the interference fringes generated by the diffracted beams of different orders, we can adjust the angle between the two Lloyd’s mirrors to be 90°. Simulation results indicate an orthogonality error smaller than 4″ can be obtained by this method. We fabricated a crossed grating with 0.30″ orthogonality error.
