Paper Abstract

The differential method used to compute the field diffracted by a grating is based on a shooting method which requires the integration of a set ordinary differential equation from the bottom up to the top of the grooves. Numerical instabilities appearing for dielectric gratings with grooves deeper than the grating period are reduced if a formulation using two simultaneous counter-running numerical step-by-step integrations is used. Such a formulation is devised here for the TE, TM and general (conical diffraction) cases. Numerical examples are given to demonstrate the improvement of the method.
