Abstract

Transmission gratings have rarely been used for beam sampling because they require special properties from dielectric overcoatings, which, to the best of our knowledge, are described here for the first time. Although such gratings are often used as beam splitters, their nature can be modified along the same principles with thin metal coatings, which are described.
