A periodic grating with an integer number of periods is fabricated at the resist-coated wall of a cylinder by exposing a circularly symmetrical planar high index phase mask to a cylindrical wave. This extends the spatial coherence features easily achievable in a planar 2D space to the 3D space of cylindrical waves and elements.
