Export of Fabrication Data of a Holographic Optical Element (HOE)

A good synergy between software design tools and the subsequent fabrication of components relies on the capability of the software to provide information about the designed structures which can be easily interpreted in the manufacturing process; in other words, being able to export the structure information in the data format used for fabrication. In this document, we demonstrate how to export the fabrication data of a quantized HOE structure to various data formats. The workflow is illustrated for STL output, widely used for rapid prototyping and 3D printing, and for GDSII, commonly employed in lithographic exposure techniques.
