Abstract

Rigorous coupled-wave theory of diffraction by dielectric gratings is extended to cover <i>E</i>-mode polarization and losses. Unlike in the <i>H</i>-mode-polarization case, it is shown that, in the <i>E</i>-mode case, direct coupling exists between all diffracted orders rather than just between adjacent orders.
