Flexible process for the manufacture of diffractive optical elements by laser processing

This project is to develop a laser-direct write technique for the fabrication of optically diffractive surfaces on the surface of stainless steel and other metals, for application in metrology.  The project builds on previous work in which the basic process has been demonstrated; in this project it is being developed into a process where sufficient control can be achieved to make it suitable for medium scale production.
