Abstract

The flow-graph approach (FGA) is applied to optical analysis of isotropic stratified planar structures (ISPS’s) at inclined light incidence. Conditions for the presence of coherent and noncoherent light interaction within ISPS’s are determined. Examples of the use of FGA for calculation of the transmission and the reflection of two-layer ISPS’s for different types of light interaction are given. The advantages of the use of FGA for optical analysis of ISPS’s are discussed.
