Paper Abstract

Computationally efficient and stable implementations of rigorous coupled-wave analysis for 1D and 2D surface-relief gratings are presented. The eigenvalue problem for a 1D grating in a conical mounting is reduced to two eigenvalue problems in the corresponding nonconical mounting. The matrix in the eigenvalue problem of 2D gratings is reduced in size by a factor of two. These simplifications reduce the computation time for the eigenvalue problem by 8 to 32 times compared to the original computation time. The required computer memory is also decreased thus complicated grating diffraction problems can be solved efficiently.
