Abstract

Fourier optics and waveguide theory are used to develop a numerical procedure to calculate performance of the focusing chirped grating. This device is of interest in development of an integrated optical data head. The method considers diffraction, aberrations, nonuniform illumination, and the effect of the grating boundary.
