Abstract

The advantages of a grating interferometer for the generation of large diffraction gratings are demonstrated. In a one- and a two-stage process, high-quality gratings of 120 and 200 mm, respectively, were made with optics no larger than 50 mm together with an argon-ion laser with no line narrowing or beam stabilization and a rotating diffuser for improved beam uniformity.
