Paper Abstract

Diffractive optical elements are becoming a standard optical design element. However, their fundamental performance is most often modeled using scalar theories which leads to optimistic performance levels. In this paper, scalar approximations are compared to rigorous electromagnetic solutions for various diffractive optical elements.
