We discuss here the capability of direct manufacture of various high- resolution diffractive optics, in particular regarding micromachining of DOEs in 3D. Preliminary demonstrations were made in 2-D using an automated FIB system operated at 30 KeV with a Gallium liquid metal ion source and equipped with a gas injection system (GIS). Gratings with a 20 nm line width and zone plates with 32 nm outer ring were milled in a reactive atmosphere (iodine) directly through 3.5 (mu) m and 800 nm of gold respectively. Plans for combining FIB and X-ray lithography to make diffractive optical elements (DOEs) for JPL are also mentioned.
