Abstract

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