Abstract

The problem of plane-wave scattering by an echelette grating with a right angle is considered in the case of high-frequency approximation (the wavelength is assumed to be small compared with the period of grating). We present the results of short-wave asymptotic analysis for a ray optical solution to the problem that was derived on the basis of the method of summation of multiple diffracted fields that is well known in the geometric theory of diffraction. A new effect of perfect blazing for an echelette grating in the high-frequency approximation is also discussed.
