Abstract
Bulk silicon wet etching can be used to fabricate silicon gratings. Wet etching depends on the anisotropic property of monocrystalline silicon. Blazed gratings for different spectral ranges can be fabricated by this method, and facets of grooves are formed by crystallographic planes of the monocrystalline silicon wafer. We develop a method to fabricate blazed gratings using deflecting crystal orientation (111) silicon wafers. The topographies of the samples are measured by SEM and atomic force microscopy (AFM), and the results indicate that the samples have grooves of good uniformity and facets of excellent optical quality.
