Paper Abstract

We present a model for multilayer coated plane gratings that uses a reciprocal space description similar to the standard treatment of crystal diffraction. This model enables us to separate the contributions from the multilayer coating and the underlying substrate. We demonstrate its use on laminar and blazed gratings, and show that it can be easily applied to more complicated grating substrates as well. Because the separation between the two terms is complete, we suggest replacing the multilayer term with a dynamic diffraction calculation when additional model accuracy is required.
