Paper Abstract

The present approach to the diffractive element design is based on Kirchhoff scalar theory of diffraction. Predictions made by this theory become unreliable if the diffraction of polarized light is evaluated. The paper presents the 'vector correction' to the Kirchhoff theory and suggest a method for calculating interaction of diffractive optical element and an incident electromagnetic field.
