Plane Blazed Holographic Gratings

Standard Plane Blazed Holographic Gratings

Diffraction Gratings


  1. The grating grooves are formed by a holographic exposure method where the two-laser-beam-interference technology is applied. This holographic method lowers groove's periodical error commonly found in mechanically ruled gratings and ensures that the low stray light gratings can be produced.
  2. Blaze angle is formed by an ion-beam etching technology , which easily makes blazed holographic gratings with various angles (blaze wavelengths).
  3. High groove density and high resolution gratings can be manufactured easily and at competitive price.

*1 : The grating grooves are formed with resin.
*2 : The (T)3mm product has the edge chipping because it has cut it with the dicing equipment.
*3 : Nominal blaze wavelength λB(Litt) is the wavelength of the maximum diffraction efficiency with the design in littrow mounting. No one to guarantee the wavelength of the maximum diffraction efficiency.

The external appearances and specifications are subject to change without notice.
Be sure to prevent condensation as this can cause a significant deterioration of optical characteristics.
