Paper Abstract

Optical systems utilizing diffractive optics often are non-rotationally symmetric systems. Use of a 3D element based modeling paradigm instead of a conventional surface based approach can make set up and perturbation studies of systems with diffractive optics more straightforward and reliable. This is demonstrated using planar optical interconnect systems for examples.
