Diffraction GratingsNIR High Efficiency Gratings for S- polarization

NIR High Efficiency Gratings for S- polarization
  • High relative diffraction efficiency for S-polarized near infrared light resulting in excellent performance for optical communication applications.
  • Less than λ/4 diffraction wavefront accuracy at 2nd order light ( λ=632.8nm).
  • Highest quality level of replicated gratings is achieved using the high accuracy holographic exposure method for the master gratings.
