Abstract
Ruled diffraction gratings and even holographic ones have a `surface texture' or an `inherent roughness' that is part of the grating making process. Using the new scanning probe microscopy (SPM), we can now see the structure that has been long suspected but not revealed using scanning electron microscopy. Also using the SPM, we can review the surface structure in the film prior to ruling as well as after. Gaining this experience, we have been able to make adjustments to the diamond tool and weight to improve the final products.
