Abstract

Consider the diffraction of a time-harmonic plane wave incident on a perfectly reflecting periodic surface. A continuation method on the wavenumber is developed for the inverse diffraction grating problem, which reconstructs the grating profile from measured reflected waves a constant distance away from the structure. Numerical examples are presented to show the validity and efficiency of the proposed method.
