An optical method of fabricating one- and two-dimensional diffraction gratings is described. As opposed to conventional gratings which feature regularly spaced grooves, these gratings have variable profiles which represent mathematical functions previously defined. These surface profiles are produced by a laser beam exposing photoresist-coated plates with a raster scanner under computer control. Two kinds of 1-D profiles for the gratings have been made: (1) Deterministic: the profile represents a mathematical function; and (2) Random: gratings possess random profile with certain statistical distributions. Several surfaces have been fabricated and characterized with a stylus profilometer. By changing surface deterministic and statistical properties, the light-scattering in the far-field can be controlled for many optical applications.
