Abstract

Polarization-selective gratings in the resonance domain of diffractive optics are calculated by use of rigorous electromagnetic diffraction theory. The polarizing effects are attained by special surface-relief structures, and the profile of binary surface-relief gratings is optimized with a nonlinear Newton algorithm to design diffractive polarizing beam splitters.
