Abstract

Rigorous coupled-wave analysis is shown to be valid for a pure reflection grating The analysis is extended to take into consideration an arbitrary phase of the sinusoidal modulation of the pure reflection grating’s dielectric constant The correct method of computing the diffraction efficiencies is presented, and results obtained with the extended and corrected analysis are given
