Paper Abstract

A S-matrix propagation algorithm for multilayer planar structure, refractive index in each layer being a function of one lateral dimension in layer's plane is developed. The algorithm is described in symbolic operator form not tied to specific representation in which boundary value problem for Maxwell equations might be solved in the layers. In the case of grating layers where refractive indices are periodic with the unique period two Fourier transform based techniques of numerical solution are implemented with S-matrix propagation algorithm. The examples of the optimal design simulations: Si grating-based zero reflection surfaces and perfect reflection layer/substrate structures are considered.
