In this paper we discuss the design, fabrication, and performance of multi-level grating array illuminators. A complete fabrication error analysis is carried out for one dimensional designs with sixteen equally spaced relief levels. Array illuminators with eight/sixteen relief depth levels are fabricated in fused silica using reactive ion etching and photolithography with three/four electron bema binary amplitude masks. Fanouts as large as 32 X 16 and efficiencies > 90% have been achieved, which to our knowledge are the largest and most efficient realized to date using multi-level relief structures.
