Paper Abstract

The coupled multiwave diffraction approach together with an optimization method is applied to design gratings, which diffract one incoming beam into N output beams with a given power distribution. Several gratings have been designed. It is shown that by choosing the material parameters properly, relatively simple continuous grating profiles having better diffraction characteristics than Dammann gratings or kinoforms can be found.
