Diffractive attenuators control the power of laser radiation using diffraction gratings. Since phase diffraction gratings do not absorb light they can be used to attenuate also high-power laser radiation (cw, pulsed). Variation of grating parameters along the attenuator results in variable transmission at a given wavelength. Diffractive attenuators can be designed for deep UV till IR.
