The design of the Shenguang system calls for a beam sampler to provide 3rd harmonic laser energy for diagnostics in the highly constrained area of the target chamber, The beam sampler should diffract 0.01%-0.5% of the 3rd harmonic light into a calorimeter at a small angle to estimate its corresponding energy. In order to achieve low efficiency beam sampling with the least energy lost, two kinds of surface-relief grating have been designed with different method. One is the rectangular phase grating with its step height and width optimized. Another one is the sinusoidal phase grating. For each kind of beam sampler, the permissible fabrication errors have been analyzed. The characteristics of them have been compared in detail.
