Abstract
Recent advances in design, analysis and fabrication have made diffractive optical elements (DOEs) an attractive and viable choice for a number of applications [1], such as optical interconnects, laser diode optics, and military imaging systems. However, in military and aerospace applications, ambient air temperatures can vary greatly and in some cases, these systems must operate over an 80°C temperature range. Nor is it uncommon for commercial products to perform over a significant temperature range. To properly design and evaluate such systems, a detailed understanding of thermal behavior is required.
