Comprehensive measurements in the vacuum uv range of 1200–3000 Å of efficiency, polarization, and scattering of classically ruled and photoresist gratings are reported. The results show that the art of ruling gratings for vacuum uv use has reached a high level of sophistication and that careful analysis of grating properties can lead to useful improvement of the ruling art.

  7. The term holographic is generally improperly used to describe this type of grating. Furthermore, the techniques of producing a grating by photographing interference fringes predates holographic technology.
