Abstract

We propose the quasi-triangle array of rectangular holes with the completely suppression of high order diffractions. The membrane with holes can be free-standing and scalable from X-rays to far infrared wavelengths. Both numerical and experimental results demonstrate the completely suppression of high order diffractions. The desired diffraction pattern only containing the 0th and +1st/-1st order diffractions results from the constructive interference of lights from different holes according to some statistical law distribution. The suppression effect depends on the number of holes. Our results should be of great interest in a wide spectrum unscrambling for any wavelength range.
