Abstract

Polarization-selective gratings are designed by use of rigorous electromagnetic diffraction theory. The polarizing effects are attained by special surface-relief structures. We present a scheme for coding two different optical functions in one diffractive element. It is based on a combination of the scalar diffraction theory and the effective-medium theory. The diffractive element may be regarded as a combination of a phase element and a subwavelength grating.
