Blazed diffraction grating masters

Inprentus gratingsInprentus offers a wide range of diffraction gratings for synchrotron, free-electron laser, industrial laser and optical-spectroscopy applications. The new method used to rule the company’s custom-designed, blazed-profile, master diffraction gratings offer the industrial and scientific community a new level of ultra-high precision diffraction gratings to apply to a variety of spectrographic products, laser instrumentation and research techniques.

Inprentus has delivered custom blazed gratings to synchrotron and free-electron laser facilities and industrial laser companies around the world. The company’s manufacturing operations include a variety of ruling machines that offer both high precision and high through-put while maintaining the capability to produce a wide range of gratings. This manufacturing center is staffed by world leading scientists engaged in the material science, nanotechnology and control system software development that is the center of the company’s expertise.


Ultra-high precision mechanically ruled blazed diffraction gratings with resolving power specifications in the hundreds of thousands and blaze angles well below one degree. Variable Line Spaced (VLS) gratings can be manufactured to customer specifications. These advancements in diffraction grating specifications create new opportunities for synchrotron beamline scientists to explore and advance the research on materials, biology, medicine and energy. Inprentus blazed gratings are ideal for soft x-ray applications like Resonant Inelastic X-ray Scattering and other techniques that demand high resolving power.

Free Electron Lasers (FELs)

Inprentus gratingsInprentus has delivered ultra-low blaze angle gratings down to 0.1º, a specification required by the extremely high-power of FELs which was previously unavailable.  Gratings can be designed up to 0.5 m in length and 200 mm wide offering FEL applications a wide range of dimensions.

Spectroscopy, Spectrometry & Spectrography

Inprentus gratingsInprentus can custom manufacture a blazed grating pattern to a wide range of specifications. Blaze angles can be manufactured from well below 1º to beyond 75º covering a wide range of applications.
