Paper Abstract

The rigorous coupled wave analysis (RCWA) implemented as the Airy-like internal reflection series (AIRS) is applied in a theoretical analysis of the optical response of diffraction gratings. Detailed theoretical description of the RCWA with respect to the AIRS implementation is provided, including the application of Li's Fourier factorization rules and the recursive algorithm for sliced relief gratings. Numerical analysis of convergence properties including computation time is demonstrated for structures made of transparent, semiconductor, or metallic materials.
