We have developed a palette of visual features based on non- standard diffraction structures, where the profile-shape and the profile depth are determining the intended effects. The target is to provide features with increased security inherent to the diffractive structures. Since the exact reconstruction of the profile is the basis of the effects, these features are very resilient against counterfeiting by standard holographic techniques. Three different types of grating structures and their use as security-feature are described.
