Diffraction Gratings are optical components used to separate light into its component wavelengths. Diffraction Gratings are used in spectroscopy, or for integration into spectrophotometers or monochromators. Diffraction Gratings consist of a series of closely packed grooves that have been engraved or etched into the Grating’s surface. Diffraction Gratings can be either transmissive or reflective. As light transmits through or reflects off a Grating, the grooves cause the light to diffract, dispersing the light into its component wavelengths.
