Abstract : In the patent gratings are used as reflectors and couplers in lasers and other optical systems in which components are exposed to high speed gas flow. The embodiment of grating reflectors as part of a system exposed to a fast flowing medium minimizes the medium distortion and maintains the high optical quality of the system. The embodiment of grating couplers as part of the optical system minimizes the medium disturbance and maintains the high optical quality of the system.
