|Abstract:||Comparison of rigorous electromagnetic calculations and measurements of grating diffraction efficiences are applied to estimate the profile of surface relief gratings. The depth of the gratings is estimated using a Linnik interferometer. Information regarding the grating duty cycle (filling factor) and edge slope can then be extracted. The inverse scatter process is inexpensive, non-destructive, and easy to carry out and its accuracy is estimated. The results are applied to calibrate a manufacturing process involving writing with a laser-beam-writing system and etching using reactive ion etching. It is shown that a combination of TE and TM polarisation measurements and calculations can be used to extract a great deal of accurate metrological information.|
