Abstract

A complete solution of plane-wave scattering from a groove-corrugated surface of infinite extent for arbitrary incidence is presented. The electromagnetic wave is decomposed into fast and slow modal representation, and the solution is accomplished through the use of the mode-matching method. We solved for the zero-order diffraction efficiency and the phase of each polarization component for arbitrary incident angles. Our results have verified special cases previously published by others and have illustrated the phase shift between polarizations associated with the diffraction process as a function of the incident angles.
