Abstract

The effect of manufacturing errors on diffraction efficiency for multilayer diffractive optical elements (MLDOEs) used in imaging optical systems is discussed in this paper. The relationship of diffraction efficiency and depth-scaling errors are analyzed for two different cases: the two relative depth-scaling errors change in the same sign and in the opposite sign. For the first condition, the corresponding diffraction efficiency decreases more slowly. The effect of periodic width errors on diffraction efficiency is also evaluated. When the two major manufacturing errors coexist, the magnitude of the decrease of diffraction efficiency is analyzed for MLDOEs. The result can be used for analyzing the effects of the manufacturing errors on diffraction efficiency for MLDOEs.
