A laminar holographic grating was coated with a Mo/Si multilayer and the grating efficiency was measured between 27 and 35 nm for an incidence angle of 10°. The zero order was almost suppressed by the negative interference due to the groove profile. The maximum efficiency of first order was 4.8% at 31 nm. It was also found that the spectral wavelength provided by the grating at 10° incidence ranges from 28 nm to 32 nm.
