Paper Abstract

Reflecting large-blaze-angle diffraction gratings operating in the off-plane grazing configuration can be used to advantage as high-efficiency tools permitting separation and focusing of a 2%-wavelength about 13.5-nm. A cooled multiple grating with fan-groove geometry is used as a model to select the desired spectral range and obtain a record-high efficiency and stigmatic image focusing for a high dispersion in adjacent orders. A maximal relative efficiency of 0.96-0.99 and reflectances of 0.71-0.96 can be readily obtained with an off-plane fine-pitch grating intercepting at incidence angles of 70-85° a converging unpolarized light beam from an EUV collector, a figure higher than that of a grating in an in-plane mount. An absolute efficiency of ~0.72, calculated with a PCGrate-SX code using the AFM-measured groove profile, is reached in the -1st order of a Mo-coated 200-nm-pitch Si test grating in unpolarized light.
