Abstract

Efficiency measurements of a grazing-incidence diffraction grating in the off-plane mount were performed using polarized synchrotron radiation. The grating had 5000grooves/mm, an effective blaze angle of 14°, and was gold coated. The efficiencies in the two polarization orientations (TM and TE) were measured in the 1.55.0  nm wavelength range and were compared with the efficiencies calculated using the PCGrate-SX code. The TM and TE efficiencies differ, offering the possibility of performing unique science studies of astrophysical, solar, and laboratory sources by exploiting the polarization sensitivity of the off-plane grating.
