Abstract

Recently developed rigorous theories have been used to investigate the diffraction efficiency behavior of both blazed and holographic gratings. In order to assist designers of spectrometric systems we have covered a complete range of blaze angles for triangular grooves and modulations for sinusoidal groove shape in first and second orders. Several types of mountings are included together with the role played by finite conductivity of aluminum. Useful classifications of both types of gratings are given, as they apply from the near uv to ir regions. Comparisons showing the close agreement between theory and experiment are presented.
