In optics, a diffraction grating is an optical component with a periodic structure that splits and diffracts light into several beams traveling in different directions. The directions of the beams depend on the spacing of the grating and the wavelength of the light so that the grating acts as the dispersive element. Because of this, gratings are commonly used in monochromators and spectrometers.
Optometrics is one of the few manufacturers that offers in-house custom design and manufacturing of both ruled and holographic diffraction gratings – in standard and custom options.
