Paper Abstract

Scatter from high efficiency, reflective diffraction gratings has been characterized. Three major types of scatter are identified: (1) random, which occurs over 27 s.r., (2) band or ghost scatter which occurs in the plane of incidence and (3) structured scatter which is a symmetrical pattern repeated about each order. Measurements were taken at 10.6 pm on gratings made by ruling, ion-etching, holography, or a combination of these techniques. We have found that the characteristic scatter from these high efficiency gratings depends strongly on the way the gratings are fabricated.
