Area-coded ective medium structures (ACES) are a recently presented novel type of diffractive structure. Because of their larger stability compared to 2D binary blazed gratings they have the potential of a broader use in micro-optics applications. The first fabrication experiments with electron-beam lithography validate the theoretical model of blazed ACES. Measured diffraction efficiencies are presented and a good agreement between the theoretical analysis and measurements has been obtained.
