Paper Abstract

In 1977, we published two papers on the diffraction of electromagnetic waves at a locally deformed flat boundary surface and at a locally deformed plane wave-guide. Since this time, an important theoretical and numerical study of locally deformed stratified media has been carried out in our lab. This study has been summarized three years ago in the J.O.S.A. and it has been presented last year as a thesis dissertation. But both the J.O.S.A. paper and the thesis are difficult to read for non specialists because the involved mathematics are rather subtle and, at least, tedious for experimenters. In other words, an important work has been done, which seems to be unknown to most of "practical people". We thought that a SPIE meeting is a good opportunity to cure this regrettable situation. A computer program is now available which probably might be very useful for those working on rough dielectric surfaces and on guided wave devices with corrugated boundaries. We would like to present to engineers the possibilities and the limits of this big computer code called hereafter Program (P)
