Diffraction gratings are designed for grazing-incidence operation in the soft x-ray spectral region. The efficiencies for various diffraction orders are simulated as a function of angle of incidence and blazed angles. According to the beat phenomenon, the grating pattern with double-frequency on the same substrate is recorded in a holographic way. The blazed grating will be fabricated using holography and ion beam etching method. The primary experimental results are presented. This kind of blazed grating is a key element used as a beam splitter of soft x-ray Mach-Zehnder interferometer, which is a new tool to diagnose the plasma generated by the laser-based inertial confinement fusion.
