Abstract

We demonstrate that the beam-propagation method can be employed to calculate the electric-field amplitude inside and outside a grating structure excited by an arbitrary incident field. We establish the accuracy of the method by comparing our results for constant-period gratings with results obtained from other theoretical methods. Subsequently, we analyze thick-focusing gratings with the beam-propagation method.
