Paper Abstract

During recent years, the technique to blaze holographic diffraction gratings has been developed considerably. In particular, reproducible methods using successive exposures enable one to superpose several harmonic to the fundamental. So, it is possible to obtain what we call Fourier gratings. We show that by using only one harmonic, it is possible to find groove profiles having efficiency curves very close to - or even better than those of ruled gratings.
