Abstract

We describe the design, fabrication, and performance of high-efficiency transmission gratings fabricated in bulk fused silica for use in high-power ultraviolet laser systems. The gratings exhibit a diffraction efficiency of 94% in order m=-1 and a damage threshold greater than 13 J/cm2 for 3-ns pulses at 351  nm. Model calculations and experimental measurements are in good agreement.
