Paper Abstract

The paper presents an approximate analysis of the conical diffraction by planar volume gratings. Explicit expressions are derived for the coupling constants and the dephasing between different diffraction orders. The results of the approximate coupled-wave theory are compared with the rigorous numerical solution of the three-dimensional boundary value problem for a specific configuration. A two-wave coupled-wave theory is presented and an analytical solution is given.
