Abstract

We propose using blazed gratings in the resonance domain with period larger than the wavelength for antireflection and polarization selection. The inherent problem in this region is wavelength dispersion, which is solved by analyzing the total reflectivity and electric field distribution. The positional relationship between the area of strong electric field, and the side and tip of the grating is crucial to the wavelength dispersion of total reflectivity.
