Abstract

Diffraction of plane waves by a corrugated grating made of a gyroelectromagnetic uniaxial material is set up by using the T-matrix formalism. The fully vectorial treatment presented here is limited in its range of applicability by the use of the Rayleigh hypothesis. The preferred axis of the anisotropic medium is considered parallel to the mean surface of the periodic interface between the medium and the free space. The analysis is exemplified numerically by calculations performed for sinusoidal gratings.
