Abstract

The performances of triangular groove photoresist gratings used in transmission are studied in the visible and near-infrared regions with the electromagnetic theory. The mounting considered here associates triangular groove gratings on the hypotenuse face of a right-angle prism in a configuration, usually called a grism, in such a way that for a chosen wavelength the deviations of the prism and the grating compensate. To assist designers of spectrometric systems, we have covered a complete range of blaze wavelengths and, consequently, of blaze angles. We studied the influence on grating efficiencies when the line density is increased, and the optimal choice angle of incidence is discussed.
