Abstract

We present a brief tutorial overview of the basic physics of periodically modulated index structures and how they affect an incident electromagnetic wave in various simple limits. Discussions of the wave-vector spectrum, coupled-amplitude equations, and finite grating-size effects are included. We also discuss ways of implementing modulated index structures.
