Gratings for severe environments with high temperature and humidity

Customer’s situation

They has been developing modules using diffraction gratings for optical communication modules. Diffraction gratings they evaluated showed coating peeling on the diffraction surface, which had been keeping their development pending.
They were looking for other diffraction gratings that have high reliability required in the optical communications industry, but it was hard to find them.
