Abstract

A new Green-function formalism is developed for calculating fields generated by sources in the presence of a multilayer geometry. The approach is to formulate the problem immediately in terms of s- and p-polarized waves generated, so that the calculation of the effect of interfaces proceeds by the introduction of Fresnel reflection and transmission coefficients and parallels the simple physical picture of light progressing through the structure.
