Paper Abstract

A method for analyzing slanted anisotropic gratings is presented. The method allows treatment of scattering and guiding of waves by a general dielectric grating with fringes of any orientation in three dimensions. Generalized coupled-wave equations are derived in a unified matrix form expressing the coupling of the space harmonics in the grating region. By introducing the concepts of the transmission and boundary matrices, the solutions are obtained rigorously by systematic matrix calculations that are easily implemented on a computer. The diffraction efficiencies of anisotropic gratinas and the properties of dielectric waveguides with slanted gratings are shown as numerical examples.
