Paper Abstract

We discuss how the rigorous grating theory can be extended to cover also partially coherent illumination such that the method stays computationally reasonable. We first discuss the S-matrix formalism if the input field is not a simple plane wave, and then continue the approach to the case of partial coherence. We illustrate the approach by investigating the imaging of a grating in a classical bright-field imaging setup.
