Abstract
Fabrication and testing results of sine-top, high-efficiency, broadband gold-coated gratings (BGCG) for high-power laser pulse compression applications are reported. These gratings differ from conventional metal-on-photoresist pulse compression gratings in that the gratings patterns are generated by directly etching the quartz substrate. The groove depth and duty cycle of the photoresist mask was controlled by changing photoresist thickness and adjusting exposure and development times, respectively. The duty cycle of the photoresist mask was further corrected by oxygen plasma etching. Using this method, high efficiency, sine-top, BGCG with line densities of 1740  lines/mm was achieved. The average diffraction efficiency at the-1st order was 89.2% and the peak value was 90% for TM polarized light as the wavelength increases from 750 to 850 nm.
