Abstract

The theory of a holographically prepared grating on a cylindrical surface has been developed, applicable in near normal incidence, in a convergent beam of light, and in transmission in the objective mode, for the design of EUV spectroscopic systems. The design parameters have been calculated for a grating with minimum astigmatism for the entire wavelength range up to 50 nm and zero astigmatism at one wavelength in this region. Coma-type aberration and resolution at various wavelengths have also been estimated with these design parameters.
