We characterize the loading, containment and optical properties of all-optical atom traps implemented by diffractive focusing with one-dimensional (1D) microstructures milled on gold films. These on-chip Fresnel lenses with focal lengths of the order of a few hundred microns produce optical-gradient-dipole traps. Cold atoms are loaded from a mirror magneto-optical trap (MMOT) centered a few hundred microns above the gold mirror surface. Details of loading optimization are reported and perspectives for future development of these structures are discussed.
