Blazed diffractive optics

Abstract

Diffractive optical elements with blazed profiles can, in theory, have 100% relative efficiency. We review several methods for making such elements and compare their advantages and limitations. Our emphasis is on processes to produce elements other than those with approximate, stepped surfaces, such as binary optical elements. For optical methods, we offer an expression relating the maximum numerical aperture of a diffractive lens with a given maximum efficiency to the numerical aperture of the recording system.
